“Yesterday, my propane tank was delivered. Dennis and Tim were professional, timely and very knowledgeable about their task to ensure that there were no leaks. Despite my telling them that the house had been hooked up to propane for years, the two insisted on leak testing the system. They did find a leak at the dryer! I’m grateful they both were dedicated, and they didn’t accept my answer. Feeling safer for my family members with this level of service.” — David M.
“Our furnace went out. I called NOCO, and in less than an hour a tech was here to fix it! The service technician was awesome and professional and had no problems with explaining things to me, and the price was very affordable. Would highly recommend!” — Michelle G.
Before Europeans arrived in the early 17th century, much of Western New York, including the area that is now Rochester, was home to the Seneca, one of the six Iroquois nations. With the Treaty of Big Tree in 1797, the Seneca lost claim to that land.
The area that would someday become Rochester was settled soon after the Revolutionary War by English-Puritan immigrants from New England. In 1803, a group led by Revolutionary War veteran Nathaniel Rochester, purchased 100 acres along the Genesee River. The river offered opportunities not only for ports but for water power as well as there were three waterfalls where that land was on the river. Soon, other landowners joined their properties with that purchased land and created what was then called Rochesterville.
The town soon prospered, thanks to the rise of flour mills and the arrival of first the Erie Canal, and then railroads. Now named Rochester, the town saw its population double in 10 years, making it the young United States’ first boom town.
In 1830, Rochester became a center for one of the largest Protestant revival movements in the country, which ended up leading to what is called the Second Great Awakening.
That spiritual revival also led to Rochester becoming an important location for social progress movements in the 19th and 20th centuries, particularly for the abolition of slavery, women’s rights, temperance and labor rights. Major leaders in those movements including Frederick Douglas, Susan B. Anthony, Belva Lockwood, Frances Willard, Shields Green, Charles Grandison Finney, Emma Goldman and Amy and Isaac Post called Rochester home. The city had many “stations” on the Underground Railroad, as local churches and businesses provided sanctuary to escaped slaves seeking freedom in Canada.
Many major businesses were founded in Rochester, including Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, Western Union, the Gannett chain of newspapers and Wegmans grocery stores, consistently rated the best grocery store chain in the country as well as one of the best places to work.
