At the turn of the century, Rosa Murphy, the private secretary of John D. Rockefeller met Dr. Amos Canfield in New York City. They married and decided to spend their summers in Candor, N.Y. Here their Georgian home was created in the center of the village and Rosa's elegant Victorian style became well known.
The well maintained formal home exists as it did then with its leaded glass windowed porch, marble fireplaces, parquet floors, beautiful stairway, gardens, pergola and gracious atmosphere.
Candor, NY is located centrally in the Finger Lakes. It is a short drive to Cornell University and Ithaca College. A drive to Watkins Glen, Corning, Elmira's Mark Twain country, Binghamton and Cooperstown can be exciting as well as visits to the many wonderful wineries and New York State Parks.
