The National Historic Landmark home of President Millard Fillmore will be featured on the “CBS Sunday Morning” program next month. According to Town Historian Robert Lowell Goller, the show’s popular and humorous correspondent, Mo Rocca, created quite a buzz in East Aurora when he visited the home of the 13th U.S. President on Shearer Avenue Thursday, Jan. 16 to tape interviews for a segment that is expected to air around Presidents’ Day.
A presidential history buff, Rocca is known for highlighting the careers and lives of the nation’s lesser-known presidents. He spent most of the day at the Millard Fillmore Presidential Site before enjoying lunch at Tony Rome’s Globe Hotel and heading to Forest Lawn Cemetery, where Millard Fillmore is buried.
