Also see . . .  Vanished Rochester: The Charles Chapman Estate. Article on the Remembering Rochester blog about the house and its use as a nursing home for women. The house was destroyed on February 13, 1968. "The unfortunate loss of the C.S. Chapman house was one of the events that served as catalyst for the formation of the Rochester-Avon Historical Society in the year that followed."
