"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

Celebrate the Barns
This program was a self guided driving tour (see
map) of selected barns that appear on the Barn
Poster. The tour was designed and coordinated by an Historic
Pittsford committee comprised of: Margaret Caraberis Brizee, Liz
Jackson-Renner, Audrey Johnson, Mary Menzie, Bonnie Salem and Deborah
Scrantom Resch. 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
Dedication of Sculpture and
A natural stone water sculpture and outdoor garden was added and
dedicated outside the new library in memory of Jackie Webber,
long-time Board member of Historic Pittsford.
Historic Pittsford Aids New
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.
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 structure viable and later, new wood windows, siding,
and carpentry work were completed.
