People stand in front  of the former Eastman Dental Dispensary on East Main Street,  Rochester, NY.

Circa 1920.


Built by George Eastman in 1917, this school trained dental hygienists not only in the United States, but extended into Europe. After the school moved to the University of Rochester in 1978, the building sat vacant. In 2007, it was purchased and converted to a haunted house for the Halloween season. Six years later, it was sold again and redeveloped as Eastman Gardens, a senior housing complex. It opened in 2016.


It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 28, 1983.
