Since 1917, the building at the corner of Hertel and Saranac Avenues has been a North Buffalo landmark. In its early years, 1391 Hertel Avenue served as both a church and a school for the Roman Catholic parish of St. Margaret’s. In the 1950’s a new church was built, and from then until 2012, St. Margaret’s School educated generations of neighborhood children within its walls. Now the building is experiencing new life as the Cornelius, a 23-apartment residence in the heart of the Hertel Avenue commercial district. Cornelius Creek Road, from which the building takes its name, was an earlier name for Hertel Avenue.
