Southeast Rochester **Signed Copy**
Published by Arcadia Publishing
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.
