Museum Exhibit
Celebrate 200 years of Rochester's history with the Rochester Bicentennial exhibit! On display in the Rochester Hills Museum's Diary Barn through the end of 2017, this exhibit highlights various aspects of Rochester's innovative community such as its schools, mills, business, and newspapers. Want to learn why Rochester was settled in 1817? Stop by the Dairy Barn on Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Visitors can also enjoy a guided tour of the 1840 Van Hoosen Farmhouse, as featured on the PBS Documentary On Van Hoosen Farm, as well as the 1850 Red House, a small tenant farmhouse owned by the Van Hoosen family and rented to their employees.
