Rochester, NY 

Phone - 585.244.8980

The Perkins Mansion was a splendid wedding gift to Elizabeth Thompkins Ginna and Erickson Perkins from her parents, the Stephen Ginnas of Plainfield, New Jersey. 

The modified English Tudor-style house and its 23 rooms, designed and built by Master Builder George Hollister in 1907, is made of hollow concrete blocks with brick facing. That new technique made the 16-inch thick walls both strong and well insulated. The curved gable facing East Avenue is in the Elizabethan style with a Dutch influence which is repeated in the detached Carriage House.
