The Wadsworth Homestead was built as the original property of brothers General William Wadsworth and James Wadsworth in 1804 and is one of the few properties in the United States that has never changed hands from family to family. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. In 2011, the family decided to open the property to public weddings and large events.
Situated on the south end of Geneseo’s Main Street, within walking distance to shops and restaurants, the property is 30 minutes from Rochester, New York.
