Christine Gibble purchased the three story brick building in 2007 with a plan to renovate and open the sports bar on the first floor, and to totally renovate the top two floors to provide lodging.


A $50,000 loan from The Progress Fund made it possible for Christine to complete needed renovations to bring life back to the old Hotel Bradford.


The historic “Rochester Hotel” was built over 100 years ago.  This building on Main Street was considered one of the finest in the city when it opened in 1894, and had many modern improvements at that time including gas and electric lights. Later, the name was changed to the Hotel Bradford and fell into disrepair. Thanks to Christine’s renovation efforts, the property has been revived and ten jobs have been created at Rookies Sports Bar.
