Discover Sweden: 200 Years of Historic Architecture
March 8, 2014 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Above is Lakeview Cemetery & its handsome Romanesque Revival chapel on Lake Rd. (Route 19) in the town of Sweden. It’s a property that’s individually listed in the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Designed by a noted Rochester landscape architect, the cemetery was the recipient of a Landmark Society Historic Landscape Award in 2010. This property is just a taste of what you’ll see at Discover Sweden.
The program will feature examples of historic resources in both the town of Sweden & its adjacent village, Brockport. Come see views of Federal, Greek Revival, and Victorian-era styles typical of western New York’s 19th-century, rural communities, through the early/mid 20th century with Craftsman, Art Deco and International styles, to the post-World War II suburban development highlighted by ranch, split-level and Cape Cods.
There will be distinctive examples of barns, canal structures, cobblestone buildings and other “hidden treasures” that are not widely known to the Brockport/Sweden residents. This is the first historic architecture talk that The Landmark Society of Western New York has ever presented in Sweden and one you do not want to miss!
