History of the Lindsay House

Historical picture of the Lindsay HouseThe Lindsay House was built in 1878 by Alexander Millar Lindsay, of Sibley, Lindsay and Curr. He built the three-story Victorian mansion for his wife, four daughters and three sons. The house was designed by James G. Cutler, and the homestead extended from Barrington to Berkeley, and from East Avenue to Park Avenue.

Over the next 20 years, the owners made considerable changes to the house. In 1900, the sun room was added. It was the “crowning glory” to Mr. Lindsay’s creation and provided the future setting for the weddings of all four Lindsay daughters.

Historical picture of the Lindsay HouseThe sun room overlooks a boxwood rose garden originally designed by renowned landscape architect Allen DeForest. DeForest also designed gardens and landscapes for Eastman, Bausch, Lomb and Gannett in the Rochester area. Mr. Lindsay resided in the home until his death in 1923. He was eulogized by George Eastman in a wake conducted in the sun room.

The home remained in the Lindsay family until the late 1940’s when it was donated to the Rochester Health Association, which provided needed community services, including Operation Friendship.

An Impeccable Restoration

The Lindsay House came on the market and Dr. Quatela purchased it in 1992. Dr. Quatela soon entered into a complete historical restoration and expansion project on the house’s exterior, interior and gardens. No detail was overlooked in restoring this estate back to its former glory. During the restoration project, in order to preserve the historic garden, it had to be painstakingly moved off site to a nursery. It was returned to the site in sections and replanted in its original 1900 form when renovations were completed. This is just one example of Dr. Quatela’s belief that “there are no shortcuts to quality.”

In addition to the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery, the historic building is now home to the Lindsay House Surgery Center — a freestanding, multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center — the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration, and Q the Medical Spa.

Treatment rooms provide both the charm and grandeur of the Lindsay House and state-of-the-art equipment for injectable treatments, post-operative care, and consultation appointments. 

Private and comfortable, our Patient Consultant offices provide patients with a place to discuss their treatment plan.

Preserved and replanted in its original form, the boxwood rose garden is an extension of the beauty of the Lindsay House.
