Genesee Co-op FCU has been located at 395 Gregory Street in the historic building known as Weider Hall since 2005. This 1885 building was built by Philip Weider (pronounced WIDER), on the site of his former house, for the purpose of opening a grocery store. A beautiful ballroom is located on the third floor of the building and according to an article in the Democrat and Chronicle the ballroom is "the last of its kind in Rochester."

The Board of Directors of Genesee Co-op FCU took great care in overseeing the design of the interior of the credit union to preserve the architectural beauty of the building. The original exposed brick walls have been maintained and panels of windows were set in place drawing natural light to our interior. State of the art security systems enhance the safety and security for our members and staff. A wheelchair ramp inclines gradually to our doors that can be electronically opened and a gracious teller space that can be easily reached from a seated position welcomes members with disabilities.
Our lobby walls are adorned with artwork of credit union members. We invite a new artist to display her or his art each quarter. If you are a member interested in showing your artwork, please contact the CU at 585-461-2230, x 12.
Our Members make the difference.

Alison is credited with inspiring the founder of Genesee Co-op FCU, David Knoll, to become an organizer of the credit union. According to David, "Alison said to me 'You need to start a credit union!' With the information and contacts she provided me, I worked to get Genesee Co-op FCU going." THANK YOU ALISON!!
