It all started in 1937, according to Wikipedia, when War Memorial Stadium was built through the WPA (The Works Progress Administration or as later named The Works Project Administration).  The stadium was originally called Roesch Memorial Stadium, then changed to Grover Cleveland Stadium (Grover Cleveland not only served Two NonConsecutive Terms as President of the United States, but was also a Buffalo Public Official...thus the stadium duly named Grover Cleveland Stadium).  Then in 1938 the name was changed to Civic Stadium and then in 1960 it was changed to War Memorial Stadium. 

In 1972 the Buffalo Bills were considering total move to Seattle, Washington (according to Wikipedia) but decided to move to Orchard Park and renamed the Bills Stadium, Rich Stadium and just recently, as we know, changed the name again to New Era Field after the passing of Ralph Wilson and Ownership change to the Pegulas.
