Wiki Sand Box/Decade Include

InfoInfo
Search:    

Test to see if I can make a page to include other years and/or tables of contents based on the Past Years page. The idea is to handle all those sparsely-populated years to merge them into a decade automatically. Maybe years prior to 1980 should just be handled as decades.


Here are some significant events from Rochester's past. The list is by no means complete or comprehensive at this point. This should serve as a starting point from which to build a more complete list. A briefer, albeit less complete, time line may be found on the History page.

Events are broken down by the year in which they occurred.
