In 1885, Henry C. Sutherland, the youngest of five brothers who made Canandaigua, “The Chosen Spot”, their home, built a grand Second Empire Victorian home on a 50 acre parcel of farmland. Henry and his wife, Lillian, raised their family on this estate while Henry launched his career as the Vice President of the Canandaigua Tin Company, served on the Board of Directors for the Canandaigua First National Bank, and raised cattle on his farm.
More than 100 years later, while saving the last five acres of the original parcel, Henry and Lillian’s home was completely renovated and restored. The tower lights under the original cast iron decorative cresting have once again been lit. The home, lovingly established as a bed and breakfast, is now known as Sutherland House Victorian Bed and Breakfast.Learn More
