Architectural Drawings

The Rochester Historical Society proudly houses more than 5,000 architectural drawings, plans, and renderings that span from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth century. Even though the focus of the drawings are buildings in Rochester, you will find some drawings of buildings in Western and Central New York.

Art & Artifacts

With almost 500 paintings, and hundreds of pencil sketches, engravings, lithographs, and more, there are a lot of different art pieces for your family to enjoy. Most of what you’ll see is work from the 19th century, which includes local landscapes, landmarks, and portraits of prominent people from Rochester. We also have thousands of objects related to the past. Majority of them were donated by families and individuals, other came from major businesses and industries in Rochester.
