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.

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 BEST Venue I Found By Far!

    I can't say enough about how wonderful this venue and its hosts were! After all the venues I looked at, The Homestead offers the most with the best quality at a very reasonable price.

    My (new) husband and I decided to purchase the weekend package, which I highly recommend! It was such an awesome and unexpected present to give our wedding party as they didn't have to pay for their lodging for the weekend. The entire house is SO interesting, impeccably maintained and full of some really amazing history that Will is very knowledgeable about! I can't imagine we could have found a cooler place to stay in for our wedding weekend; the history of the house made it a unique and unforgettable experience that our guests loved too.

    Working with Will through the entire process was so easy and stress-free, he has such a calming presence and you can tell he truly cares about every aspect of your day. He had contingency plans for everything and walked us through with ease and patience. Even though I've never planned and completed a wedding myself before, he's done hundreds and it shows!

    The Homestead works exclusively with caterer Lisa Bleier from the Caledonia Village Inn and the food was incredible! I have a cousin that has attended and planned tons of weddings and she said it was the best wedding food she's ever tasted. It was an excellent meal and the whole staff did an amazing job getting everyone served at once so that we could all eat together.

    I have zero regrets about choosing The Wadsworth Homestead as my wedding venue; we had the most amazing experience!

    Highly recommend!!

    Absolutely stunning location! Will was so helpful through the whole process, but especially on our wedding weekend. We did not have to worry about a single thing - Will and his team made everything so beautiful and the whole weekend ran so smoothly. We fell in love with this venue from the first time we visited it and it will forever be so special to us. Everyone from our wedding is still talking about how amazing this place is!! We would highly recommend!!
