Rochester is a city located in Strafford County, New Hampshire, and is currently home to over 29,000 residents, making it the fifth-largest city in the state. Rochester is perhaps best known for its Skyhaven Airport, a local public-use airport that houses primarily small, single-engine planes. Rochester also includes the communities of East Rochester and Gonic, villages that are a part of the city of Rochester but usually referred to by their own names. Rochester is also home to the Rochester Fair, an annual fair that appeals to the local community and offers many interesting and fun things to do on a yearly basis.
Though settlement of the Rochester area, including the naming thereof, was first started as early as 1722, full-scale settlement did not begin until the late 1740’s due to conflict with local Native Americans. Once established as a permanent settlement, Rochester became a farming community, and was officially incorporated in 1778. During the Industrial Revolution, Rochester grew into a mill and lumber town, though over the course of the 20th century much of its industry disappeared. Rochester’s economic planning, however, helped overcome to the loss of business, and the city is still thriving today.
During the summer months, average daily highs in Rochester tend to reach into the low-to-mid 80’s during the day, with overnight lows often dropping down into the mid-to-upper 50’s. During the winter months, however, temperatures drop decisively, with average highs barely reaching above freezing and overnight lows often dropping down into the low teens. Snow is relatively common – from December to March it averages roughly 14 inches of snow per month. This can make winter shipping into and out of Rochester more difficult and expensive, so keep that in mind.
