Historian writes book on Seabreeze amusement park

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Seabreeze has been a staple in the Rochester-area since 1879. Throughout that time, owners have fought hard to keep it open. 

That's something historian, Jim Futrell and many in our community are grateful for. In fact, Futrell was so moved by the park's amazing story that he wrote a book to share it with people across the world. 

"This industry is full of a million stories and Seabreeze is one that called out to have its story written," said Futrell. 

He continued, "This is a park that's been around almost 140 years and there are multiple generations that have shared memories here. I think just flipping through the pages you will see rides that are no longer here that you might have shared with your parents or grandparents."

Futrell's book "Images of America: Seabreeze Park" will officially go on sale Monday, July 9, 2018.
