A History of Rochester

Rochester is a city of many identities. Rochester was first known as "the Young Lion of the West" and then as the "Flour City." By 1838, it was the largest flour-producing city in the United States. Considered America’s first boomtown, the region's rich agriculture and natural landscape shaped by the Genesee River and raging waterfalls created the perfect environment for flour production. Mills lined the riverfront, and using the power of High Falls, a 96' waterfall in the center of the city, Rochester became the largest manufacturer of baking flour in the world. A claim to fame: Rochester is the birthplace of the graham cracker!

Rochester has played a pivotal role in civil rights thanks to two famous residents. Famed suffragist Susan B. Anthony lived and worked in Rochester for 40 politically active years. Fighting passionately for women’s rights, Anthony was also a staunch Abolitionist, working alongside her friend and fellow Rochesterian, Frederick Douglass.

Rochester also has a storied history of businesses founded in the city, including Eastman Kodak, Bausch and Lomb, Fanny Farmer chocolates, French’s Mustard, and Gannett Newspapers.
