The Livingston County Flag
The Genesee River is a defining feature of our community. This river created the “beautiful valley” that the Seneca named Genesee. It provided sustenance and resources to various groups of people and functioned as a highway for travel and transportation. The Genesee River continues to serve as a site of recreation and a source of national pride. Historian Anna Patchett wrote that “through the ages, the Genesee has had a way of endearing itself to the inhabitants of its region.” What role does the Genesee River and other Livingston County waterways play in the lives of people today?
