Our 2021 book, Rails to Trails: Rochester Junction Then and Now by Diane Ham & Charles Woolever is available for purchase. It’s a beautiful 182-page softcover book with 127 photos, 51 color pages, 7 informative maps, and a full index. Proceeds benefit The Mendon Foundation.

In the works for almost a year, and with contributions from many people in our community, this is the first book about the history of Rochester Junction ever published. The book chronicles the Junction’s days as a key stop on the Lehigh Valley Railroad, through its conversion to a rail-trail by the Mendon Foundation and Monroe County Parks in the present day.
