Rochester Historical Commission

A few years ago, the Rochester Historical Commission purchased a print at a Marion auction. The print is of the summer residence of the late Charles H. Leonard in Rochester. The residence was built in 1756 and remodeled in 1850. Sadly, it is no longer there as it burned down in the early 1900’s. The provenance of the print was that it actually hung in a home at Eastover. After having some restoration done to the print, it was framed, and this August it was loaned to the COA to hang in their foyer. We hope people look for the print when visiting the Rochester Senior Center, as the accompanying picture doesn’t do it justice.
