Buffalo, NY, (WBEN) - The Junior League of Buffalo opens the Decorators' Show House to the public Saturday.  More than 20-thousand people are expected to visit the house over the next 3 weeks. 

The Show House is in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, at 766 Ellicott Street in Buffalo. The home is known as the August Feine House and dates back to 1888. 

Show House Chair Debi Scherer said it's a complete renovation.  "It's incredible to see the transformation the house has taken in the last couple of days". 

Thirty-seven decorators, artists and landscapers have poured ideas and inspiration into the project.  Public tours are available through May 21st.  

After that, Pam Chrzanowski said the house, with many donated materials remaining, will be turned over to Kevin Guest House, for patients and families that come to Buffalo for medical care.  "The property will be returned to us at the end of May and this will double the amount of guests that we can accommodate on our campus".  Kevin Guest House was the first health care hospitality house in the country.  It will celebrate its 45th anniversary in July. 

The house will be re-named the Russell J. Salvatore Hospitality House on the Kevin Guest House Campus thanks to the local philanthropist's contributions to the project.
