Sitting on 300 acres of land, the interior is furnished with decor collected over six generations, while the grounds allow couples to basque in the the dramatic landscape of awe-inspiring oak trees, lush fields and forests that surround the property.

Couples can host up to 300 guests in warm weather (125 in the winter). For reception options, couples can choose between the large dining room on the first floor or, for larger parties, a tent on the grounds is provided. Cocktail hour can be hosted in one of two drawing rooms or the elaborately decorated library.

Cuisine
Food at the Wadsworth Homestead is prepared by Jeff and Lisa Bleier of the Caledonia Village Inn. Their 40 years of experience drives the excellent food and presentation of Homestead events, and their expertise includes uniquely designed menus and artfully designed ice sculptures.

History
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.

Location
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.

The Wadsworth Homestead checked every box we had, plus so many more! This venue was beyond our dream venue. It has everything. Charm, history, nature, and individuality. We could not have asked for a better venue for the best day of our lives. From the beginning, Will was responsive, accommodating, and wonderful to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are still on cloud 9!

We could not have chosen a better place to have our wedding reception at! The house, grounds, and reception area were absolutely stunning and my guests could not rave enough about the Homestead. Will was amazing...as a bride planning the wedding from overseas, Will made everything run smoothly and made the planning process so easy and calm. I highly recommend The Wadsworth Homestead!!
