GENESEO – The estate of General James Wadsworth is offering the grounds of the Historic Landmark Hartford House to the public as a gorgeous wedding venue.
Current resident and owner Corrin Strong says that his own parents, Alice Wadsworth and Trowbridge Strong, were married at the Hartford House in 1948, and he is now opening the venue for the public to do the same.
“Valentine’s Day is a traditional time of year to pop the question,” said Strong. “It seems like the perfect time to announce that this place is now open to newly betrothed couples.”
The 13,000 square-foot house was built by General James Wadsworth in 1835 on the north end of Main Street. Its 70 acres overlook the scenic Genesee Valley. Its counterpart, The Homestead, was built on the south end of Main Street by his father and founder of the Village of Geneseo, James Wadsworth.
The estate is partnering with Partyman Catering in Avon for events.
The inside of the house will not be available for large events. However, all grounds, including a walled garden and formal garden, will be available.
The Garden Suite Bed and Breakfast at the Hartford House is also available for rent. It sleeps two to four people.
