For Women's History Month, celebrate some of the femme figures who have made their mark on our cities, neighborhoods, and small towns. From nationally known figures like Louise B. Bethune, who was American's first professional female architect, to local icons like Helen Ellwanger, who founded one of the nation's earliest preservation organizations, the Landmark Society of Western New York, this class will explore the preservationists, urbanists, architects, and other designers who have shaped the built environment.
If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
Class ticket purchases are non-refundable for any reason, however a credit or transfer may be granted if requested 7+ days prior to your scheduled class. For more information on our policies, please visit our FAQ.

One of Rochester’s most distinctive buildings, Warner Castle is located in Highland Park. Built in 1854, the residence was modeled after a Scottish castle. Today the Castle is the home of The Landmark Society of Western New York and offers a strategic opportunity for the sensitive redevelopment and re-use of a unique property located in the city’s oldest park.
