A FEW POPULAR ATTRACTIONS
The Edgerton neighborhood is a bustling residential area alongside the Genesee River Gorge. The neighborhood was once home to several prominent figures in Rochester history, including George Eastman and Margaret Woodbury. While Eastman’s accolades with Kodak are internationally-recognized, many Rochesterians are unaware that Woodbury’s massive toy collection became the basis for the Strong National Museum of Play.
Edgerton's residents are able to access Rochester's scenic Genesee Riverway Trail easily. A walk or bike ride down the river takes visitors through the City of Rochester, and gives way to several breathtaking views of High Falls. At the heart of the Edgerton neighborhood, visitors can stroll through Jones Park, a green space designed by the famous American landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted.
Community activism is a core tenet among Edgerton’s residents. The neighborhood works with the nearby Maplewood district to assist refugees with resettlement and job finding efforts.
