Woodworth Homestead, built in 1860 is believed to have been a stop on
the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. It was sold in 1960 and
soon fell into utter disrepair. After only a few years the house became
unoccupied and remained vacant for fifteen years until
when we lovingly restored the home, transforming it one of the most romantic
Finger Lakes bed and breakfasts; the
Villa Serendip Bed & Breakfast.
e have been fortunate to acquire the
genealogy The First Six Generations of the Woodworth Family in America
from the descendants of Calvin Van Kirk Woodworth; brother of Samuel
Fitch Woodworth, the original owner of this unique Victorian mansion. We
love to help our guests with genealogical research. The Woodworth
Website has wonderful information about the family. Please visit the
