The Fisher Homestead in Springwater NY

Photos and information courtesy of Michael Duffy.



This is a photo of the Fisher homestead that belonged to George Fisher and Carrie (Wheaton) Fisher. Their eldest daughter, Minnie Mae (Fisher) Duffy was a town clerk for many years in Springwater. Minnie was born on the farm in 1899. The farm was located not far from where Wheaton Hill road intersects Route 15A. The farm was purchased from George Fisher by the City of Rochester in the effort to clear the houses away from the Hemlock Lake reservoir.

In the enlarged version of the photo are visible many details; the ducks and farm implements in the barn yard and on the far hill the Bonn Homestead.
