Victor tells the unique story of a historic community in the Finger Lakes region, just south of Rochester. It chronicles Victor's past as a Seneca Indian capital to the coming of Massachusetts settlers in the 18th century through to life as it was in the 20th century. With over 200 photographs, this book shows how people in rural upstate New York lived, played, studied, worked, and worshiped. The images are from the town and village archives, the Victor Historical Society, the Ontario County Historical Society, and private collections. Many are previously unpublished photographs, and several are by Fred Locke, an amateur photographer who is considered to be "the father of porcelain insulators."

Babette Mann Huber has been the Victor town historian since 1990. Along with Victor, she has also written pamphlets, booklets, articles, and plays on local history. A retired fourth- and fifth-grade teacher from Victor Central School, she received the 2005 Bruce W. Dearstyne Annual Archives Award for Excellence in the Educational Use of Local Government Records by an Educator from the New York State Archives and the Board of Regents. Her hope is that this pictorial recording of Victor's past will be memorable for residents and visitors, young and old alike.
