Stone-Tolan Gets a Facelift!

posted by Larry Francer, Associate Director of Preservation

When was the last time you drove by the Stone-Tolan Historic Site at 2370 East Avenue just over the Brighton line? Or better yet, when was the last time you visited the Stone-Tolan House? Well, if you haven’t checked it out in the past couple of months, you’ve missed all the action that has been taking place on The Landmark Society’s 1792 farmhouse and tavern historic site. The Stone-Tolan Historic Site has been getting a facelift!

Due to the generosity of the Davenport-Hatch Foundation and the Rochester Area Community Foundation, The Landmark Society has been able to bring in some of the finest craftsmen in the region to bring this spectacular property back to its former glory.  Master carpenters Matt Sweger and Eric Cady have rebuilt custom wooden storm windows, repaired trim, rebuilt animal pens and the wooden well as well as completed repairs on the historic barn. Tim McGrath and his meticulous crew of painters have been prepping not only the house and barn but also the majestic wooden fence that encloses the heirloom apple orchard and runs the length of the property. And the historic paint colors and fine trimming details are being applied as we speak (or read).

So drive by and admire the work in progress, stop by and chat with Tim about some of his other projects at historic properties or spend an afternoon at the Stone-Tolan Historic Site, open Fridays and Saturdays from 12 – 3:00 p.m., and see how much a facelift can rejuvenate this stately, old visage.
