Speaker: Andy Rau

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Rochester’s Maplewood neighborhood was an ideal place to live for Native Americans and early white settlers due to its proximity to the Genesee River.

Come and learn about the area’s history, from Kelsey’s Landing to Glen House, to the “lost” settlements of Carthage and McCrackenville and the commercial opportunities from the water power of the Lower and Middle Falls. You’ll discover things you never knew about Maplewood’s historical, cultural, and economic significance.

Location:  Rundel Auditorium, 3rd floor, Rundel Memorial Building
