The site on which this city is built was once the land of the Seneca Tribe, part of the Iroquois Nation. The Seneca named this region Gen-nis-he-yo, which means "pleasant valley". Hunters and fishermen once roamed the lakeshore, riverside and nearby streams, for the Genesee Valley was rich with wildlife and fertile soil.

Enos Stone was the first permanent settler on the east side of the Genesee River. There he built the area's second saw mill, after the failure of Ebenezer "Indian" Allen's west-side mills. Construction of Rochester's first bridge over the Genesee in 1812 permitted rapid development on both sides of the river.
