Historic North

 Historic. Vibrant. Diverse.

The Historic North Neighborhood Association was first established in February, 2010. The neighborhood is one of eleven neighborhoods in the City of Geneva created as a result of the Neighborhood Study completed in December 2008 by czb, LLC. The neighborhood boundaries are approximately from North Street to Lewis Street (inclusive of all of North Main), and west of the Finger Lakes Railway right-of-way to just east of Oak Street. As is implied by the name, the Historic North Neighborhood is home to a rich array of historic architecture. Consisting mainly of residential properties and churches, one can find both large elegant structures as well as modest working class homes, often within the same block. The diversity of the people within our borders reflect a rich cultural history that adds to the character of our neighborhood. Historic North is also home to abundant green spaces with historical significance including Genesee Park, Richards Park and the landscaped median of North Main Street, the only one of its kind in Geneva.
