I’m pleased to announce the publication of Pittsford, the newest title in Arcadia Publishing’s “Images of America” series. Pittsford Town and Village Historian Audrey Maxfield Johnson and I have worked on this pictorial history of Pittsford, New York, for the last eighteen months and are thrilled with the results.
Pittsford chronicles the lives of the earliest settlers of the town, who arrived in the late 1780s, to their descendants who reside in Pittsford to this day. Other families have shorter roots in Pittsford soil, but have made significant contributions to its history through commerce, agriculture and education.
This book is truly a community effort, and we wish to express our appreciation to the people who shared their family photographs and stories with us. We are grateful for the opportunity to illuminate Pittsford’s history in such a personal way.
