    Biographical / Historical

    An important figure in the Rochester cultural scene, Walter Cassebeer (1884-1963) is best known as an architect, but was also an avid artist, bibliophile, horticulturist, and historian. Cassebeer designed several churches in and around Rochester, as well as some of the landscapes of Durand Eastman Park. Much of his artwork featured buildings, and his numerous lithographs of Rochester’s skyline show how the city changed and grew throughout his life.
