60 Google Images That Show How Much Rochester, Minnesota Has Changed Throughout the Years
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 truth is, our town has changed a lot through the years. We've got bars that are now providing funeral services, schools that have disappeared from our map, and roads that have appeared out of nowhere.
Wow! Check out how Rochester has changed throughout the years in these Google photos.
I think the 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.
