Ruth Miller Brody Administrative Office Building of the Anthony Museum (16 Madison Street)
The house at 16 Madison Street is an elaborate example of the Queen Anne style and features an ornate, center-tiered octagonal tower with carved wood panels, as well as panel banding and a wrap-around porch with turned posts and original wood railing. It is set apart from other Queen Anne style homes of its time by its interesting shingle treatment.
Joseph Weber, a partner in the law firm of Weber, Shell, Rosenbaum, and Company, lived here in the late 1880s.
In the mid-twentieth century, it was occupied by the Hilbert’s who served as caretakers for 17 Madison Street, but a later owner faced economic hardship, and the building became vacant. With the assistance of KeyBank and Flower City Habitat for Humanity, the house was purchased by the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House for $1 in 2004. It now serves as the Ruth Miller Brody Administrative Office Building of the Anthony Museum.
