1Title:  Hezekiah Eldredge Family Papers     
 Creator:  Eldredge, Hezekiah Family 
 Dates:  1817-1979 
 Abstract:  Hezekiah Eldredge was a builder and architect in western New York and the Ohio City area of the Western Reserve of Ohio. Born in Connecticut, by 1824 he settled in Rochester, New York, and set up an architectural and building firm. His buildings in New York State included the First Presbyterian Church of Rochester; the United States Bank of Buffalo; the Holland Land Office, Batavia New York; Lockport Lot Clerk Office; and the Bank of Genessee. In 1834, he moved to Ohio City. He established an architectural and building business. Saint John's Episcopal Church, built in 1835 on W. 26th St., was one of his most notable accomplishments. Other projects were the Ohio City Exchange, the Cleveland Center Block, the Baptist Meeting House in Brooklyn, the Pearl Street House, Ohio Merchants Hotel, and the Vineyard Lane Bridge. He became chief engineer of Ohio City in 1837. His descendent, Sarah Rusk, collected documents, drawings, letters, and genealogical information on the life of Hezekiah Eldredge. The collection consists of correspondence, writings, legal records including bankruptcy papers, accounts, receipts, architectural drawings, newspaper clippings, and genealogical notes. Series I consists of Hezekiah Eldredge's personal records, finances, and business records. Series II consists of Sarah Rusk's correspondence and notes of her research on Hezekiah Eldredge's family history and buildings.
