Crawford Funeral Home named to NYS & National Register of Historic Places 

2004- The New York State Register of Historic Places in December 2003 officially recognized the Crawford Funeral Home Inc., as part of the Browncroft Historic District, on the State's Register of Historic Places.  Then in April 2004, it was announced that the funeral home had been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which is overseen by the National Parks Service.  With this honorary designation the funeral home and Browncroft District join 135 other sites in Monroe County on the list.  

Democrat & Chronicle Staff Writer Rick Armon wrote, in an article on May 4, 2004, "What sets the neighborhood apart, community leaders said, is the landscaping.  The area was developed in 1914 out of nursery properties owned by the Brown Brothers Nursery."  He Continued, "Browncroft was recognized for the architectural integrity of the homes, a landscape design that features uniform plantings of flowering shrubs and shade trees, and its role in the development of Rochester.  The area includes about 400 properties with many prairie style, Tudor revival, Georgian and Colonial revival homes."

  We are proud to have the Crawford Funeral Home property recognized as part of the Browncroft Historic District.  We congratulate all our neighbors and the members of the Browncroft Neighborhood Association who worked so diligently to help us join more than 77,000 sites nationwide on the National Register of Historic Places.
