Images of America: Southeast Rochester (NY)


Southeast Rochester provides an overview of the neighborhoods that exploded with the development of the Erie Canal from the 1820s to the 1890s. The early South Avenue District stretched from the original canal and the Genesee River to the ancient glacial hills once called the Pinnacle Range. Noteworthy sites include Mount Hope Cemetery, the nation’s first municipal cemetery and final resting place for the Frederick Douglass family and the Susan B. Anthony family; Highland Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted; the University of Rochester; and Colgate Divinity School.
