    Sheffield Square Subdivision
    Sheffield Square is a subdivision in Penfield that was built by a local well-known quality builder, Fran Hirsch,

    It is located off Qualtrough Road between Browncroft Blvd on the south and Embury Road on the north. Most of the land was apple orchards owned by the Heberle family and a few of the apple trees still exist throughout the subdivision. My wife and I used to pick up "drops" which were apples that had dropped off the trees onto the ground. We would feed them to our horses.

    Construction of the homes in the subdivision was planned to be built over three phases starting with the southern part and moving north towards Embury Road for the last phase. Fran Hirsch started the building in 1988 and completed the last home in 1996.

    An interesting characteristic of this subdivision is the fact that the two phases to the south are in the Penfield School District and the last phase is in the Webster School District. At the time it was being developed, it was considered the most expensive subdivision in Penfield.
