Save the Date: November 30!

For years, the furnace that heats the front part of the Hinchey Homestead managed by the Gates Historical Society for the Town of Gates has been red tagged. The 2nd furnace that heats the back half of the first floor is all the heat the house gets.

Now the Gates Historical Society has the offer of a new furnace for $3500 with no installation costs. 

All donations received from ROC the Day November 30 will go for this new furnace. Help us achieve our goal of $3500 with your tax deductible gift. Go to

ROC the Day is a 24-hour, online event that gives people in our community an opportunity to support all of the not-for-profit organizations doing great work in the nine-county Greater Rochester area. Visit, a secure online giving platform, to make a gift. All ROC the Day gifts will help local people and organizations.


ROC the Day is a day where we get to see our entire community come together and donate to those who need it most. Join in the fun this year on November 30.
