The Driving Park Avenue Bridge and Glen House, near the Lower Falls of the Genesee River.

Circa 1890.


Designed by A.J. Warner and built in 1870, Rochester's first waterfront resort, restaurant and dance hall was known as "The Glen House." A vision of Rochester's George Ellwanger and Patrick Barry (owners of one of the largest nurseries in Rochester),  The Glen House only lasted for 24 years, when after a decline in business due to rising popularity of Ontario Beach Park, it burned down in 1894.  If you'd like to read more about it and see a video of the demolition, head to RochesterSubway's article, here.
