"Partnering up to preserve Pittsford's history" by Ernst Lamothe, Jr. (a freelance writer from Rochester)

Audrey Johnson and Vicki Profitt, two women who serve on the Historic Pittsford board, are now co-writing a book entitled Pittsford for Arcadia Publishing. The book will feature numerous stories and never-before-seen pictures of early settlers and essential people who contributed to making the suburb a vibrant community.      (Click here to read the entire Democrat and Chronicle article written by Lamothe.)

Historic Pittsford thanks the owners of the selected barns: Mr. and Mrs. William Cherry, Mark Greene and John Hopkins, Mr. and Mrs. William Willard, Ms. Mary Menzie, Mr. Paul Knickerbocker, Shelley O’Brien and Nadia Rusinovich and Mr. Larry Knickerbocker

Historic Pittsford Aids New Orleans

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Board of Directors of Historic Pittsford voted to make a contribution to the Preservation Resources Center of New Orleans and invited the community to participate. With the help of the community, Historic Pittsford made a gift of $1,000 in support of the restoration efforts.

Historic Pittsford Supports the Town's Barn Project

The Jefferson Road Schyler Barns were saved with the help of the Historic Pittsford committee, which was able to raise about $35,000. The town had to replace the roof to keep the structure viable and later, new wood windows, siding, and carpentry work were completed.
