The Little House Needs a Little Help

Historic Pittsford has launched a campaign to raise $25,000 for restoration, repair and maintenance of the Little House, which will celebrate its 200th birthday in 2019.

While it has aged well under the care and stewardship of Historic Pittsford members, the Little House is now in need of professional repair and restoration.

For the past 50 years, Historic Pittsford has served as a conscientious custodian of this petite, Federal Style landmark situated in the heart of Pittsford Village.

The Little House serves as Historic Pittsford’s headquarters, welcome center, mini-museum for display of historical artifacts and central location for small educational presentations and programs. Residents visit seeking historical information, research assistance and so much more.

While it may be small in stature, The Little House does a BIG job for Historic Pittsford and the community.

A little history about the Little House

While the identity of the original builder remains unknown, records indicate that the Little House was built 200 years ago, ca 1819 – across the street from its current location. Originally used as an attorney’s office, it had three rooms – a front room where the attorney could meet with clients, a parlor and a small bedroom.

Through the years, the Little House served as offices for a doctor and lawyer, was a bakery, a library, a private residence, a nursery school and a travel agency.

It was rescued from demolition in the 1960’s with the help of a fund raising campaign that secured the funds necessary to relocate the house across the street to its present site where it became the property of the Pittsford Historical Society. Historic Pittsford became the owner and steward when the historical society was dissolved.
