Saint Bernard's Seminary is a historic former Roman Catholic seminary complex located at Rochester in Monroe County, New York. The seminary closed in 1981. Between 1982 and 1992 the property was owned by Kodak. It was eventually sold to a private developer and is now a senior citizen residential complex.[2]


The campus of Saint Bernard's is a group of four interconnected buildings designed by noted Rochester architects Warner & Brockett and built between 1891 and 1908. The four buildings are the Center or Main Building (1891–1893), the Chapel (1891–1893), the South Building or Philosophy Hall (1900), and the North Building or Theology Hall (1908). All four buildings use Medina Sandstone in their construction and share a Victorian Gothic style of architecture with stone walls and brick trim.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
