Be a valentine times two!


Place a bid on The Landmark Society’s eBay auction and you may win a pair of diamond earrings for the love of your life.

IMG_5693m Forsythe Jewelers donated a pair 14K Yellow Gold .75TW GH/SI diamond studs for our Diamond Jubilee silent auction. They also offered to reset them in a 14K white gold 4 prong basket at no additional charge. But we didn’t receive the type of bid that was worthy of these stunning earrings. So we decided to offer our friends a valentine of our own!

By supporting your favorite organization you have the chance to surprise your special someone with the valentine of their life.

RIT Student Project Highlights Five to Revive


When Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) students, Jenny McCabe and Mariah Lamb, contacted The Landmark Society regarding a collaborative project featuring one of our Five to Revive selections for 2013, we jumped at the chance. Jenny and Mariah wanted to do a feature on the pedestrian bridges that span the Erie Canal in Genesee Valley Park. Visit our website to read more about this project and to see the final results.
