60 Google Images That Show How Rochester Has Changed Through the Years
Remember when the North Target in Rochester was where Hobby Lobby is now?
Rochester is known for two things - Mayo Clinic and having lots of construction. Ok, we probably have a few more fun facts about our town but the fact is, our town has changed a lot through the years. We've got bars that are now providing funeral services and schools that have disappeared from our map and roads that have completely changed.
Wow! Check out how Rochester has changed throughout the years in these Google photos.
I think the one biggest change for me, and one that still makes me pause when I drive by, is the bar that is now a crematorium. I would have NEVER guessed that history.
What's one thing that you miss in Rochester?
It's hard to remember all of the restaurants and stores that used to be in our town, or even how our roads used to look. Hwy 52 had this really weird interchange at 19th Street NW. I can't even remember how it was odd but I remember driving it and thinking that I wasn't safe. I don't miss that but there are quite a few restaurants and stores that I wish we didn't lose. You can see some of those below.
