About Buffalo City

Our History

Buffalo City, chartered in 1859, is the oldest incorporated city in Buffalo County and was once perhaps the smallest city in the United States. The name Buffalo City may have been chosen because of three brothers who raised buffalo on a bluff overlooking the city. Our City Park is home to the original Buffalo County Jail , built in 1862. The current estimated population is 1023 .
