Circa 1913.


On July 4,1912, the 25th flag of the U.S. expanded to 48 stars with the addition of New Mexico (January 6th) and Arizona (February 14). President Taft ordered for the arrangement of six horizontal rows of eight stars each, with the single point of each star pointing upward. This would be the offical flag for the following 47 years, until 1959.

Formerly known as the town of Northfield, ​​​​Pittsford was settled in 1796 and incorporated in 1827. It was named by War of 1812 hero, Colonel Caleb Hopkins, after his birthtown of Pittsford, Vermont.
