The H.H. Warner building was constructed in 1869 for patent medicine tycoon Hulbert Harrington Warner. This impressive seven-story structure built by New York City architect Louis P. Rogers was a unique structure in the Rochester cityscape. Boasting intricate cast iron work and embellished designs, this Venetian Gothic style building was far different from the Romanesque designs dominating the 19th century. The H.H. Warner building served as the headquarters for Warner's "Safe Cure" empire.
