Historic church on Jefferson Ave demolished after fire a year ago
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — An historic church building in Rochester is no more. The 185-year-old building that housed the Jefferson Avenue Seventh-Day Adventist Church was demolished on Thursday.
It was seriously damaged during a fire on Christmas day last year. Church leaders say repairing the building would have been too expensive.
The church has bought a new building on Chili Avenue and will begin services there in the spring.
