Love it–great job guys–
We believe that we have a carriage that is signed “Rochester” that may indicate that it was made in Rochester, NH since the family was from New England. We suspect it was made in the 1930s but did not come to western NewYork until 1920 or 1930 as an antique. I am interested in information about carriage manufacturers in Rochester if there were any.

In the mid to late 18oos there were several carriage makers in Rochester. Edgerly made carriages in Rochester beginning in 1839. They are still in business today as an undertaker. Nahum Corson and John W Roberts also made carriages in 1878. Is this a full size carriage? There were people who made baby carriages as well.
It is wonderful to visit your site and learn about Rochester, NH. I am from Rochester, NY, also a lilac city. I was wondering what is the history of the name “lilac city” for your town?
I’ve recently inherited a large painting and the back is signed: “presented to Mr. And Mrs. W. Linscott painted by Emerson D. Linscott Rochester NH 1896. I wonder if you can tell me anything about this person?
Thank you, Ruth
Hello, I am looking for information and any historical photographs of North Main Street, particularly images that may show buildings at 32 to 38 North Main Street. I have been researching Macs’s lunch wagon / diner that was located next to 38 North Main Street. It was owned by Charles M. Andrews.
