50th Anniversary (Virtual) House and Garden Tour

What does a spectacular home in the Council Rock area, a historic farm house near Brockport, a 184-year-old elegant Rochester mansion, and a trendy mid-century modern dwelling in Brighton have in common? They are all part of The Landmark Society’s 50th Anniversary (Virtual) House and Garden Tour.

Good news!  Since the tour is virtual, you don’t have to drive between all of these locations.  They will “come to you” in a professionally produced video tour, available on your favorite computer, tablet or smart TV in October. Stay tuned–tickets go on sale mid-September!

One more YUP walking tour left!

This week’s Architecture in the Wild walking tour class with our Young Urban Preservationists and the Rochester Brainery is sold out but you have one more chance to catch the YUPs in the wild! Next week, on Wednesday, April 19th, they’ll be exploring the architecture of the Neighborhood of the Arts and East Avenue neighborhoods. Don’t wait to register–tickets are going fast and will sell out! (Social distancing and masks will be required).



Crash Course in American Architectural History - 19th Century

Presented by the Young Urban Preservation with the Rochester Brainery:

Love old buildings but have no idea what you’re looking at? In this class, students will get the rundown of American architectural styles from the Colonial era through the 19th century, with a focus on local and regional examples. Learn the names of important architectural styles common in the northeast; some basic architectural terminology; and how to approximately date the buildings you see every day. This class can be taken on its own or students can continue the fun with Crash Course in American Architectural History II – 20th Century.


Crash Course in American Architectural History - 20th Century

Presented by the Young Urban Preservation with the Rochester Brainery:

Continue your architectural edification with 20th century styles! These are the styles and building forms that dominate many of Rochester’s city neighborhoods like the 19th Ward, Park Avenue, Browncroft, and most of Maplewood. You’ll learn the difference between all the different revival styles that were popular in the early 20th century–Tudor, Colonial, Spanish–and explore the mid-century styles like the Ranch and the Split Level.
