New York native George Vandeventer, who came to Avon Township as a child in 1834, became a successful businessman and civic leader in Rochester. When their home burned in 1875, George and his wife, Julia, built this Italianate-inspired house. The fire persuaded George, who served three terms as village president, to lead the campaign to establish the fire department, which was formed in 1882.
