The Deland family was extremely influential in Fairport’s early economic and social development. The home of Henry Deland was constructed in 1874. It is the most visible reminder of the status of the DeLand Family in Fairport in the late 19th century. The French Chateau home is the most elaborately designed example of Second Empire architecture in area. The foundation trim, door, and window casings are made of medina stone; portions of the roof are of the mansard style. The most imposing architectural feature is the three-story central tower. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Converted to an in early in the 20th century, the Green Lantern Inn has functioned as a banquet facility for many years, and is a popular fixture in the Fairport community.
The DeLand House was designed by John Rochester Thomas.
