Electric Owl Works, in South Wales, NY, is situated on several acres of wooded, hillside property in rural Erie County. Just twenty five miles south of downtown Buffalo and about twenty minutes NYS Thruway exit 54, it is tucked away and removed from distractions while remaining very convenient.


Electric Owl Works is located in Myrtle Bank, the former country home of the late Dr. Edwin A. Mirand, a world renowned cancer research scientist, educator, and long time employee of Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Myrtle Bank resides on several acres of secluded, wooded hillside in South Wales, NY.  Originally built as a hunting cabin in the 1940s, Dr. Mirand acquired the property in the late 1950s and made substantial improvements over the decades, reshaping it into an architecturally significant structure in the region with a Mid-Century design aesthetic.

Throughout his life, Dr. Mirand hosted numerous business and social events at Myrtle Bank where he entertained family, colleagues, and dignitaries surrounded by his substantial collection of art, antiques, and furniture that he acquired during his world travels. The home served as a celebration of art, culture, learning, and also provided an open, welcoming environment for members of the gay community.
