Register Entries in Need of Clarification

Canandaigua City

  • Veterans Administration Medical Center - This structure was listed in the Federal Register (47 FR 4965) on February 2, 1982. There is some question about the status of the buildings and which ones are covered. Documents in the files of the Engineering Department at the VA Medical Center indicate that the VA has merely determined that the site may be eligible for listing but is not actually listed.
  • The old mill at #132-134 Bemis Street has been demolished.
  • The house at #26 Coy Street has been demolished.
  • St. Mary's Church Convent at 16 Gibson Street is on the Register as the General John A. Granger House. From the ground, it appears to be on Main Street, but the address is Gibson Street.
  • The Ontario County Court House, a part of the Canandaigua Historic District, is on the National Register.
  • The City Pier and Colonial Inn (McGregor's) may not be cited in the National Register but may be included in a City Historic Preservation Ordinance.

Geneva City

Both of these structures were listed in the Federal Register (46 FR 10676) February 3, 1981, although at least one of them has since been demolished:
  • Hotel Seneca (demolished)
  • Jacobs Building (Exchange Street)

Town of Manchester

  • Hill Cumorah is still tabled and its status as a historic property under state and federal legislation is questionable. No reason for the tabling has ever been given.

Town of Victor

  • Ganondagan State Historic Site (Boughton Hill) was increased in size by 245 acres in July 1998. No notice was received that the new acreage was included in the register citation.
