Description

Today, it is just a place name—an unincorporated hamlet within the towns of Gates and Chili, western suburbs of Rochester in upstate New York. But in its day, Coldwater was a business and transportation hub with an official post office address and a regular stop on the New York Central main line. Twelve trains a day came through.

Donald G. Ioannone, a decades-long Gates resident and business owner, and John M. Robortella, past editor of the Gates-Chili News and past local history columnist for Rochester Magazine, have collaborated on this history to provide a modern-day reminisce of Coldwater’s character and personality. They found that the railroad and the post office only a foundation. The people of Coldwater took the lead in family, church, school and business. The story of Coldwater is their story.
