The Rochester-Avon Historical Society (RAHS) was founded in 1969 to help preserve, collect and interpret the history of the greater Rochester area for present and future generations.

We believe that:

  • By educating our citizens about their heritage, we celebrate our democratic way of life and instill an appreciation of our history.
  • By perpetuating our past through the preservation of historic resources, we maintain a rich diversity in our community life.
  • By respecting and restoring architectural integrity of structures and by conserving neighborhood environments, we preserve the unique character and document the historical evolution of the place in which we live.
