Building/structure dates: 1868 initial construction

Significance: As the home of Rochester's wealthiest man when is was constructed in 1868, it stands today as an example of the use of residential architecture to illustrate and enhance the social position of a prominent member of the community. With the stylistic alterations (ca. 1900), the family continued to use the current architectural mode exemplifying wealth and social prominence, as perceived in western New York at the turn of the century.
