The    Cocheco River    provided power for Rochester’s early factories and mills, which made it a very prosperous place for many decades, starting in the early 19th Century. Shoes and blankets were among the major products. Prosperity spawned a remarkable degree of cultural energy, which continues to this day and has included the construction of an opera house and the residence of numerous visual artists, albeit some only in the summer.
