The skeletal remains of as many as 150 people and pieces of wooden coffins have apparently been unearthed at the University at Buffalo.  The discovery was made by a contractor working on a sewer line at the UB South Campus.

UB officials are saying the remains were discovered on an area of the South Campus that runs parallel to Bailey Avenue.  University officials say they are not surprised by the discovery because the South campus was the site of the Erie County Almshouse and Poor Farm between 1853 and 1909.  Poverty stricken people not only lived there, they were laid to rest in a Potter’s Field there.

The Buffalo News reports this is not the first time human remains have been found on the south campus.  Over the years, there have been other discoveries during small construction projects.  The remains are being stored in a crypt in the event they could ever be identified.
