Mike Battle Illuminates Rochester History with the Flour City Post

June 7, 2009

Many people know that Rochester, New York is nicknamed the “Flower City,” due in large part to the Ellwanger & Barry Nursery Co.  Fewer people know that Rochester’s original nickname was the “Flour City” because of the numerous flour mills that were located all along the Genesee River.  Mike Battle knew about Flour City, and chose to name his new business the Flour City Post.
