The lands of Quarry Hill Park were once part of Rochester's historic State Hospital grounds. Join other adults on a guided walking tour of the park to visit some of the interesting historic features that remain from a century of State Hospital use. For example did you know that the hospital farmed over 1,000 acres and provided all the food required for all of their patients? From cave, to cemetery, to quarry operations - the history is rich and intriguing!
