Fairport was first settled as the town of Perinton in two flats areas of Perinton Center by Glover, Johanna and Jesse Perrin. Originally a swampy area, the land was drained with the construction of the Erie Canal in the 1820s. The town quickly became a busy center on the canal widely known for being a “fair port.” The addition of railroads in 1853 brought new industry and transportation to the reputable town. Incorporated as a booming village in 1867, the town eventually became the center of activity in the area.
Perinton has been home to many large companies including Deland Chemical, Cobb Preserving and the Trescott Company. The companies have relocated or been acquired, but today Fairport is still home to a thriving business landscape. Nearby Rochester has many exciting sports and nightlife attractions, allowing Fairport residents to enjoy the best of city and suburban living. Residents love to celebrate with the local community, and attend numerous family-oriented activities throughout the year.
