Rochester in Motion (1833-2001)

 

Text text text

Construction of the Carthage Railroad commenced in 1831, under the auspices of the Rochester Canal and Railroad Co. This line might well be called a suburban or (rather tongue-in-cheek) interurban railroad; it was built to serve the need for land transportation between Rochesterville, and Carthage, a thriving village located about three miles downstream on the Genesee (which means it was located north of Rochesterville, as the Genesee River flows north, for those who didn't already know this).
