Roch. Hist. Soc. Troubles

There is a very good article of the financial troubles of Rochester Historical Society on the Rochester Beacon. The Hist. Soc. made an announcement last month that they were running out of cash. They have been coming up short for many years and their collection may end up getting split up unless someone steps up in the near future. At the end of this article, it says that this is part one of two.

Rochester Beacon is technically a blog but the articles are written real journalists. All the articles are Rochester area based. Some opinion and some news.


  1. Hi Dick,
    This is horrible news! The Rochester Historical Society matters, and it’s important, especially because Rochester matters, and Rochester’s history is important.

    Thank you for helping to spread the word about this. I wish I lived closer and had a way to help.

  2. “Short of cash.” Do they know of any reason to suspect misuse or theft? As ghastly as it sounds, it does happen. Is that being investigated at all?
