The Bull’s Head neighborhood is only a few blocks long, but it’s packed with Rochester history. In the early 19th-century, the neighborhood marked the Western gateway to downtown. In 1816, a public courthouse was established on Buffalo Street (now West Main Street) in the heart of the area. The “Bull’s Head Tavern” was a popular resting place for cattle drivers passing through the city. In 1857, Rochester’s first hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital (now Unity Health) began in a stable nearby.
Located only minutes away from Center City, the Bull’s Head neighborhood is the perfect spot for those working downtown. The neighborhood is expected to go through a strong growth period over the next few years, as community members work with the city to revitalize this historic area.
