Burdett Building
19 South Main Street

This 2-story side-gable commercial building was built in 1814 as a tavern and store by Samuel Hildreth. Hildreth also built the house at 44 North Main and, before being remodeled, the two structures looked very similar (See 29 Pittsford farms). The front gable with loft hoist was added about 1870. At that time the building was used as the home and general store of the Bacon family. Before the present Town hall was built in 1890, Town officials met in the ballroom on the second floor. During much of the twentieth century, the building has been owned by the Burdett family who operated a grocery store for many years.
