Circa 1903.


The Court Street Bridge is a historic, stone arch bridge designed by city engineer J. Y. McClintock. Constructed in 1893, its six shallow arches still span the Genesee River.  The last two arches extend over the Johnson and Seymour Mill Raceway (constructed in 1817) to produce energy from the river for local mills. 


In 1984, the Court Street Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Over the river, at Court Street, once stood the Erie Railroad Passenger Station. Designed by railroad architect, George E. Archer in 1886, and completed the following year, the "Erie Depot" was one of the few electrified railroad stations. Struggling to recover from the effects of The Great Depression, the passenger service ultimately terminated in 1941, and the station was demolished in 1942. 

The property currently serves as a parking lot for the Blue Cross Arena.
