A description of the book states that:

The rich history of Pittsford began in 1789, when Revolutionary War veterans Simon and Israel Stone purchased 13,298 acres of land in Western New York. Early settlers Stephen Lusk and Caleb Hopkins, a War of 1812 hero, established prosperous farms in Pittsford that have flourished for 200 years. These men created a bustling community that enticed other families to settle here. While agriculture has been a mainstay of many area families who have resided and farmed in Pittsford for generations, others have made their marks in business and industry. Many of the photographs contained within Pittsford were shared by descendants of these early families. Through the years, the town and village of Pittsford have grown due to the desirable rolling topography, the fertile farmland, the excellence of its school system, and the quaint charm of this historic community.
