Butterfield House - Utica, New York
GRACE CHURCH AND BUTTERFIELD HOUSE occupy the square on the east side of Genesee Street, between Elizabeth and Devereaux Streets. Grace Church is a fine edifice of sandstone, erected about 1863. The Butterfield House was built by and named for the first man to construct and operate a railway in New York State; it is four stories high, and is the leading hotel in Utica.
Mailed from New York to Mrs. J.E. Farr of Elvira, New York on April 13, 1908:
Reached here on time. F seems to be stand the trip all right. We leave here at 1:30 for L.P. arriving at 7:05. Much colder up here and there were a good many snow banks along the way.
