Jeremiah’s Tavern owner sues Irondequoit over historic landmark designation

IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. — The owner of the local Jeremiah’s Tavern chain is suing the Town of Irondequoit over a historic landmark designation of its property, Titus Tavern.

In October, the town’s Historic Preservation Commission voted to make Titus Tavern, at 690 Titus Avenue, a historic landmark.

The owner of Jeremiah’s wants to tear down the property and open a new location there. Court documents show he is trying to reverse the landmark designation, saying there are procedural issues with the designation process.

Jeremiah’s Tavern already has four locations: Penfield, Gates, Henrietta, and Monroe Avenue.
