The Baron Steuben Place

(1929), 1 W. Market Street

Architectural Style: Renaissance Revival

Named in honor of the eighteenth-century German military leader, the Baron Steuben Hotel was built on the site of the old Dickinson Hotel in 1829. It was said to have offered the "latest and greatest," as well as serving as the center of all cultural and social events for the City of Corning. The Baron Steuben served a bustling clientele, taking advantage of its location between the Erie Railroad (now Denison Parkway) and the Tioga Railroad (now Tioga Avenue). Renamed Baron Steuben Place, the building now houses many businesses and the Information Center of Corning.
