Bygone Business Collection Now Available in Print

The third Remembering Rochester print collection is now available! Remembering Rochester: Bygone Business, a collection of the posts about Main Street businesses of the mid-twentieth century, has just been published by the Rochester-Avon Historical Society and goes on sale today at the RAHS booth at the Greater Rochester Heritage Days in the Rochester Municipal Park.

This collection contains 19 stories and a new introduction, covering Case's Hardware, Crissman Pharmacy, the Four-O-Six Bar, and many others.  The cost is $9 and every penny of the proceeds benefit the local history education and historic preservation projects of the Rochester-Avon Historical Society.

If you are in town this Memorial Day weekend, be sure to stop by the park to enjoy the festival events including the Lions Club car shows, the antique fire trucks, the lumberjack show, the craft sale, the Civil War encampment and the exhibits by the local historical agencies.  Your Remembering Rochester author will be manning the Rochester-Avon Historical Society booth on Saturday afternoon if you want to drop by for a chat about all things Rochester.

Copies of Remembering Rochester: Bygone Business and other publications of the Rochester-Avon Historical Society will also be available for sale at Lytle Pharmacy on Main Street and through the RAHS online store.
