What’s In A Name?

Posted By on March 20, 2010

Sunday, March 28th, from 1 to 3 PM
Have you ever wondered how folks got nicknames like “Grasshopper” or “Gudge” or “Bluejay (aka “Hot Dog”)?  How did places like “Satan’s Kingdom”, “The Gold Region” and “Bingo” get their names?

Join the Rochester Historical Society as we explore the origins of local names.  You may have some names that we haven’t thought of to add to our list.

This program will take place on Sunday, March 28th, from 1 to 3 PM at the Forest Service office on RT. 100 north of Rochester.  All are welcome!
