11-17 South Madison Park
Built in the 1890s, the townhouses, or row houses, as they were called then, at 11 through 17 South Madison Park were rare for their time in Rochester. Originally built as a four-family structure, they now provide apartments for eight families. The largest residential building in the neighborhood, it features double-tiered porches with Doric columns and gable porch roofs with triangular pediments. Completing the striking front view are projecting bay windows, a central dormer, and a raised stone foundation.
It is said that Susan B. Anthony enjoyed her view of the park from her front porch, until it was blocked by these townhouses.
