Description (ca. 1921):


Kodak Park was a large industrial and manufacturing complex that was expanded and developed from 1890 onward. The complex is located 3 miles north of downtown Rochester. Kodak Park was used to create Eastman Kodak Company's Photographic and Motion Picture Film products. Over time it was expanded to meet the massive demand of these products. One of Eastman Kodak’s founders was George Eastman.

By 1921 Kodak Park would have been around for over 30 years and would be a busy industrial manufacturing plant that would be in a stage of growth as new buildings are created in order to keep up with the demand for the photographic products it was manufacturing.

In its heyday Kodak Park did not actually constitute green space in any sense of the term, although there has always been a small memorial park with public access, on Lake Avenue, just north of Ridge Road West.
