ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Landmark Society announced its 2024 Five to Revive list of historical properties.

This list which is in its 11th year calls attention to local historic properties that need rehabilitation in the Rochester region. This year’s list includes properties from Monroe, Ontario, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties. 

The following properties have been chosen for this year’s list:

Vacuum Oil Site in the City of Rochester, Monroe County

Naples Memorial Town Hall located in the Village and Town of Naples, Ontario County

Palmyra-Macedon Aqueduct in the Town of Macedon and Village of Palmyra, Wayne County

Warsaw Park Street Train Depot located in the Town of Warsaw, Wyoming County

Grassroots Preservation Organizations

Tom Castelein, the chair of The Landmark Society Five to Revive committee said, “Landmark Society staff is dedicated to working collaboratively with property owners, municipal officials, and developers to facilitate investment, foster rehabilitation, and carry out the organization’s mission to protect the region’s distinctive architectural heritage.” Castelein continued, “This has proven the key to success with resources such as Holley High School, the former Wollensak Optical Company in Rochester, the Clarissa Street Corridor in Rochester, and the hamlet of Childs in Orleans County.”

The Five to Revive committee announced potential reuses for the Vacuum Oild including mixed-use commercial and residential development, and mixed-income housing.

Plans for the Naples Memorial Town Hall include installing a new roof, adding a historically sensitive elevator to make the building accessible, and other necessary repairs.

The Palmyra Aqueduct as part of the Erie Canal Pathway will be reinforced at the embankment where there are signs of erosion. The repairs will be done either through rebuilding the embankment or through deconstruction and relocation of the structure.

Plans for the Warsaw Park Street Train Depot include stabilizing the depot and moving it from its current site to a new location to be repurposed for the community.

The Grassroots Preservation Organizations include a few locations and the Landmark Society is in talks with a potential collaboration with Main Street America. Ultimately, this will be up to the organizations themselves and they mentioned that all interested parties will be involved in this process.
