  1. I believe our home in Canandaigua may have been designed by Don Hershey. It was built in 1963. I have the name of the original owners (we are the 4th). How can I find out for sure if this was one that Don designed?

  2. We currently live in the Milton Karz house on Canandaigua Lake. We believe it to be the only Hershey home on the lake. I have the original set of blueprints stamped by Don. Modifications were needed because the design was originally a butterfly roof and the roofing products of 1975 did not result in a waterproof valley. The home was completed in 1975 and has a sweeping view northeast into the Vine Valley across the lake. Milton Katz was the original owner and he was the developer for Riverton in Henrietta and Rustic Village Apartments across from the MCC campus. Interestingly, the siding on our house matches those two Karz projects.
