Restored and revived to reveal the majestic beauty of this urban ballroom, The Wilder Room is the perfect backdrop for any celebration!
This beautiful space, named after former Rochester Mayor, A. Carter Wilder, was a twentieth century hot spot for the affluent members of the city’s society. Once the residence of Mayor A. Carter Wilder, East End’s Rochester Club was established in 1860. The exclusive club was membership based and known for its glamorous private events. In 1911 the Club was renovated to include a grand ballroom lit by 4 crystal chandeliers, which today still stand. With light renovations and a name change, honoring one of Rochester Club’s own, we have modernized a piece of the city’s history and hope to bring it back to life!
