The front yard of 5 Portsmouth Terrace, Rochester, NY 14607 is a bit more crowded now than it was when this hitching post was new. Today, there is an electical box and a fire hydrant in close proximity to this precarriously leaning post!

This hitching post has outlasted the house it was associated with. Although there is an original house one lot over, the lot on the corner that I believe is associated with this hitching post has a modern condo on it (facing Park Ave).

Two hitching posts and an upping stone in between, within line-of-sight of the Holt Homestead historical marker. How's that for authentication?!

in Historic Upping Stones, Hitching Posts, and Carriage Blocks

Upping stone made of cast iron by the Otto Iron Works. I am not sure if the owner was Ira L. Sherman of Cattaraugus NY but a search did show him to be the president of The Newton Valley Oil Company in Salamanca , Cattaraugus County NY.
