The Village of Hammondsport’s Historic District has been nominated for the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
The area is home to nearly 450 buildings spanning from 1823-1975, including houses in many architectural styles such as Victorian, Queen Anne, and Craftsman.
The village’s history is also tied to the Erie Canal and the Curtiss Aircraft Corporation, founded by Hammondsport native Glenn Curtiss.
“These nominations showcase the New York spirit of innovation, adaptation, and community building that has existed for generations and continues to inspire us today,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “Adding these sites to our historic registers broadens our understanding of New York history and encourages us to learn more about our diverse, collective past.”
Being listed on either the state or national register can help with property revitalization through grant funding and tax credits.
