Canandaigua’s North Shore Heritage

Rediscover the North Shore in this exhibit — “Canandaigua’s North Shore Heritage.” Explore our lakefront’s rich Native American past, its development as a commercial hub through the City Pier and the coming of the steamboats and railroads, and its transformation – thanks to the automobile – to a major and downright fun recreational destination that has created family memories for generations through boating, marinas, Roseland, restaurants,and of course, the swimming school in days gone by and the beach at Kershaw Park today.
 
This exhibit can also be seen at the Lyons National Bank (LNB) in Canandaigua, located in the Roseland Center Plaza on the corner of 5&20 and East Lake Rd.
