Located in Rochester, New York, Hose 22/Stutson House is a banquet hall wedding venue that was first established in 1916. Considered the crown jewel of Charlotte, Hose Company No. 22 operated here until 1962. After vacating the facility, the building stood vacant for 47 years. The year 2007 saw a revival of the premises, brought about by Craig Ristuccia. Turning the establishment into a lovingly revitalized restaurant, complete with homages to its first life, Hose 22/Stutson House was born.
