Around Mendon and Honeoye Falls is a photographic essay that imparts a sense of the people who lived here and their activities from early times. The first pictorial history of the area, it contains images from the town historian's files, the village files, and the historical society files. Located south of Rochester in Monroe County, Mendon and its sole village, Honeoye Falls, were first settled in 1791. Mendon was officially organized in 1813, a few years before Rochester. Just far enough away from the bustle of that city, Mendon continues to be a lovely, rolling, rural township with a number of large farms, and Honeoye Falls continues to draw visitors throughout the year.
