Historical Walking Tour- Beyond Flour and Flowers: Industry in Rochester

Historical Walking Tour- Beyond Flour and Flowers: Industry in Rochester In-Person

Rochester’s logo, a blue lilac combined with a water wheel, is telling of the city’s industrial history. Both the logo and the nicknames it features—Flour City and Flower City—evoke the two major industries that fueled the city’s early development. However, a myriad other—and perhaps lesser known—local industries and inventions also helped put Rochester on the map. Meet on the north side of the Rundel Memorial Building to explore Rochester’s industrial history on this 1.2-mile walking tour.

*In case of inclement weather, tour may be canceled.
