  • Genesee River (Postcard History)

    One of the few rivers in the United States running south to north, the Genesee River was the result of the last great ice sheet that covered New York roughly 10,000 years ago. The Seneca Nation fished and hunted along the river, important to New York since the beginnings of time. In the early 1800s, it served as a source of waterpower for numerous industries. It provided water for early canals, and when the canals gave way to railroads, special sites along the river became popular destinations for entertainment. From the early 1800s, Ontario Beach Park was dubbed the "Coney Island of the West," and in the late 1800s, trains brought scores of tourists to Letchworth for spectacular views of the canyon, falls, and wildlife. Today, a series of parks and hiking trails can be found up and down the river.

  • Snap Shots: Geneseo State Normal, 1918 (Genesee Valley Historical Reprints)

    This pictorial of Geneseo Normal School scenes is an attractive, thorough “snap shot” of the school as it existed at nearly 50 years old. Included are photographs taken from within and without “Old Main,” then still the school’s sole building (albeit with all its added wings and annexes) -- different scenes and activities within the library, kindergarten, and other training school classrooms; athletic teams and facilities; orchestra and dramatics; plus a few outdoor scenes. The inclusion of photos of the Court St. kindergarten, the Union School on Center St., and the infirmary on North St. (one of the first of its kind in the nation) illustrates the school’s early expansion and influence in the community. Well-framed and composed, the photographs manage to portray the people and places of GNS to maximum effect. One photo in particular, captioned “Winter Sports – Tobogganing,” offers a rare view of the Old Main “complex” looking up the hill from the west, a wooden fence in the mid-ground suggesting the limits of campus development at the time. This slim little album is peppered throughout, curiously but adorably, with photos of birds and other little critters – including two owls on a branch (“Get Wisdom”) and a squirrel’s head just visible in the kno...

  • Reflections on Big Spring : A History of Pittsford, NY and the Genesee River Valley

    Reflections on Big Spring is a thoughtfully researched, highly readable celebration of the rich heritage of the Genesee River Valley, Pittsford, NY and the Big Spring that drew generations of Americans to the area. The Seneca Tribe who lived in the Genesee River Valley for five centuries were the fighting elite of the Iroquois Confederacy. The author chronicles the series of seminal decisions that led to the gradual displacement and ultimate downfall of these proud indigenous people. New Englanders immigrated to the great frontier of western New York State in the early 19th century seeking the well-publicized "agricultural el dorado." These pioneers were of hearty stock and by nature, strong-willed risk-takers. From both of these sturdy gene pools came generations of brave war heroes, inspirational politicians, compassionate humanitarians, civil rights leaders, creative inventors, and revolutionary entrepreneurs. Their influence has been substantial not just locally but throughout the state, the country and the world. Follow the lives of resident humanitarians Frederick Douglas and Susan B. Anthony as their inspired civil rights efforts make history. Consider the courage displayed by lesser-known local heroes who farmed, taught school or ran stores during the day and became "conductors" on the area's Underground Railroad after dark. Oral histories of secret passages, tunnels, caverns and hidden rooms take readers on the "last 100 miles to freedom" ride. Seamlessly woven throughout the text are fascinating facts that define the uniqueness of the Genesee River Valley. While closely tied to its agricultural roots, the area is home to several of the world's most prestigious business enterprises and was the birthplace of a wide variety of revolutionary technologies, business strategies and labor-management practices. Discover how Genesee Valley residents shared amateur photography, xerography, the UPC label, self-service groceries, white hots and cream style mustard with the world.
