This 2-story commercial building was one of the original produce depots at the Public Market. The Market moved to this location–its third–in 1905.
The building was built in two phases by Charles E. Crellin a produce distributor who lived on the premises upstairs. The older section where Cure is located was built c.1910, and the building was doubled in size in 1919. You can see the seam in the brick at the stairway to The Yards.
For a fleeting moment during 1930 the building was leased to “Rochester Watermelon Distributors”.
Cure staff are convinced the building is haunted. They say:
We’ve heard strange, inexplicable noises while closing, had objects disappear or re-arrange themselves. We even held a seance, complete with ouija board- the ghosts announced themselves as Bertha, Frank and Laura!
