View of the Convention Hall on Clinton Ave (near Washington Square Park), Rochester, NY.

Circa 1905.


Since its initial completion, this building has been redeveloped nearly every 40 years. First designed by A.J. Warner in 1868, it was built as the "State Arsenal Building."  By 1907, it was repurposed as the Convention Hall, hosting entertainers (such as opera singer Enrico Caruso) and political conventions. By 1949, it was adapted for the Naval Academy. Then, from 1982-1985, after a period of vacancy, it underwent extensive renovations. The roof & rear building (far left) were removed to redesigned as "The GeVa Theatre." 


It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 4, 1985.
