Title

Birdseye View of Springwater, NY

Description

From a hillside looking approximately southwest, view shows part of the watershed supplying Hemlock Lake and ultimately the city of Rochester, NY. At the time of this photograph the town's population would have been around 1,700 people, still primarily involved in agriculture. Springwater was established in 1816 and encompasses the highest point in Livingston County. During its early history stands of forest were logged before giving way to farming.
