Rochester may be better known for its rolling hills and lilac fields than for its architecture, but look closely and the city’s hidden gems reveal themselves. In this survey of Rochester’s historic architectural elements and styles, city planner Michael Behrendt encourages you to “slow down, look round...check out the fancy cornices on North Main Street and admire the brickwork on the few remaining mill structures.” Impress your neighbors by pointing out the Italianate, Queen Anne, Georgian or Federal styles of their houses and identifying the mansard roofs, oriel windows and porticos around town. Drawing from his series of articles written for the Rochester Times, Behrendt examines everything from barns, churches and schoolhouses to the prominent Rochester Opera House. Discover Rochester’s history as written in brick and stone, marble and mortar.
