Main Street

Stewart Avenue, which serves as Roscoe’s main street, was named after Jehiel Stewart and his brother Luther, who settled in the area in the early 1800’s.  Today it is the charming center of the hamlet.  Recently, the NYS Assembly awarded two Golden Feather Grants for Roscoe’s efforts in the revitalization and beautification of its downtown space.  In 2010, Roscoe was awarded the Main Street Grant, which provided funds to the community for improvement of the local buildings and upgrades to Stewart Avenue.
