2014 Five to Revive announced

Auditorium Theater 4441_3

Last week, we announced our 2014 Five to Revive list. We were so pleased to be joined by State Senator Joe Robach, Monroe County, the City of Rochester and our community partners in Brockport, Clarendon and Seneca Falls. The Five to Revive is a list of historic properties in our region that we have identified to be in need of targeted revitalization. Whether buildings, landscapes, or structures, they are significant historic properties whose rehabilitations can become catalytic projects for the neighborhoods and communities that surround them.
