Connections: Discussing the future of the Rochester Historical Society

Jan 18, 2019

The Rochester Historical Society has more than 200,000 objects related to Rochester's history, but the future of those objects and the society is in jeopardy due to a lack of funding.

We discuss what could be next for the organization. In studio:

  • Carolyn Vacca, president of the board for the Rochester Historical Society, Monroe County historian, and chair of the Department of History at St. John Fisher College
  • Tom Latta, board member for the Rochester Historical Society, and vice president of leasing for Buckingham Properties
  • Richard Calabrese, board member for the Rochester Historical Society
