All week long we were trying to bust an urban legend rumor that we kept hearing over and over and over again: did Depew, NY have the most amount of bars in America at one point?

The answer is yes. Depew, back in the 1900s had the most amount of bars per capita in the United States of America because of the population and major railroad industry in Depew.

After finding that record, we decided, WHAT ELSE does Buffalo has its' name in the record books for?
