33 Madison Street
Dr. Husted Wanzer, a prominent dentist, settled in Rochester in 1842. He owned several properties on Madison Street, including 17 Madison Street, now the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House. Wanzer lived at 33 Madison Street from 1866 to 1869, when it was then occupied by James & Annie Douglass.
George C. Wanzer, Dr. Wanzer’s son, served as a major in the Union Army during the Civil War. He was captured in May of 1864 and spent nine months in captivity.
The 2 ½ story house is a spacious single-family residence. It features original clapboard siding and a full front porch with a double front door and segmental arched transoms. It includes stone piers, round columns, and original wood railings.
One prominent feature of the house is the large second-floor balcony that overlooks Susan B. Anthony Square Park. On the side of the home is its original carriage stop.
The interior features an impressive, rounded staircase leading to the second floor, large front parlors with pocket doors, a formal dining room, and an eat-in kitchen.
