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.

As we are soaring down Hwy 52, it is hard to imagine what life was like in our town before the Target store was built where it is today. Or the house that you live in now, at one point in town, that wasn't there. In fact, Rochester has grown so fast throughout the years, most of our houses weren't even around 50 years ago! Don't believe me? Look through these photos to get a glimpse of what Rochester was like years ago.
