Description:
Stagecoach on Ridge Road, 1860's. Stagecoach travel along the narrow Ridge Road was a popular means in the early to mid 1800's. The road was often cluttered with cattle, pioneers, freight wagons and tourists. There were many popular inns along the way. The coach could typically hold twelve passengers, but more would be stacked wherever possible. It ran on the Sabbath, much to the dismay of some "Blue Law Rochesterians," who went on to form their own coach line called the Pioneer, which only ran on weekdays.
