Fact of the Day: York Bison

The city of Buffalo, New York is named after the nearby Buffalo Creek. Nobody is certain why the creek was named Buffalo, but it is very likely it was named after the american bison that once roamed in the area.

I just assumed the city was named for the bison, but it makes MUCH more sense that it was named for a creek that had bison near it!
