Historical Society releases new book

The Rochester – Avon Historical Society is excited about the new book it is offering just in time for holiday giving.

Remembering Rochester – Main Street Stories by Deborah Larsen offers a charming view of Rochester’s Main Street of the past and the present. Through Larsen’s research, the stories reflect the rich history of Main Street.

Did you know that Main Street’s first paved surface was made of brick and laid in 1916? The story is timely because the brick will again be exposed when Main Street is reconstructed in 2012 and more stories are sure to appear.

The book is on sale at Lytle’s Pharmacy, Holland’s Floral and Gifts, the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm or via PayPal at www.rochesteravonhistoricalsociety.org. For more information contact Rod Wilson at (248) 651-6178.
