I was thinking earlier that it was here in this community that Franciscan Friars first lived in Cattaraugus County. Ellicottville, New York is more often thought of as a winter resort but it is one of the jewels of Western New York and it glistens year round. I love the quiet here at Nannen Arboretum which is located just inside the village. I have found peace and quiet here on Wednesday evenings this spring. I am drawn to this contemplative setting and here I find solitude immersed in the sights and sounds of this quiet tract of land.
