Remember when the Eastern Hills Mall was being built in the late 70s?

The mall was originally to be named "Buffalo Mall", but the name was changed to Eastern Hills Mall at the request of the town of Clarence.

"Eastern Hills" refers to the very low hills that contribute to a slightly higher elevation than the bordering areas. Apparently, at the time it was being built it was the largest shopping center around WNY.

Here's an old school picture we found of the mall being built in the ate 1960s by Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation.
