Fairport is a village located in the Town of Perinton, which is part of Monroe County, New York. Fairport is a suburb 9mi east of Rochester. It is also known as the "Crown Jewel of the Erie Canal". In 2005 it was named as one of the "Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine. The population of the Village of Fairport is 5,353 as of the 2010 census.HistoryThe town of Perinton was first settled by European Americans in the two flat areas of Perinton Center and Egypt. The first settlers in Perinton were Glover Perrin, his wife Johanna and his brother Jesse. What was developed as the village of Fairport was a swampy area within the Town of Perinton until the 1820s, when it was drained by construction of the new Erie Canal. With the opening of the Canal, what was then known as Perrinsville quickly became a busy canal port with a reputation for being a "fair port." A further boon to the area's reputation as an industry and transportation center came with the construction of railroads in 1853. This now booming section of Perrinsville was incorporated as a village on and eventually became the center of activity for the town of Perinton.In the 19th century industry moved into Fairport, including Deland Chemical, Cobb Preserving, and the Trescott Company . Deland Chemical later became Fairport Vinegar Works, makers of Certo brand pectin used to jell foodstuffs.Our United States visit planning website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
