Spencerport Depot & Canal Museum, Spencerport

The Museum building was originally the Spencerport Trolley Depot which serviced Spencerport as a stop on the Rochester, Lockport and Buffalo interurban trolley line from 1908 to 1931.

In the 1930's it was moved to Amity St. and turned into a house. In 2002, Maxine Davison bought and donated the building to the Village of Spencerport so that it could be "used for the good of the community"

On May 23, 2005 the building was moved to its current location and restored. Thanks to many hours of volunteer work Spencerport now has this lovely museum showcasing artifacts and the history of the village.

It also serves as a visitor center with shower facilities and restrooms for boaters who are able to dock outside.

  • Always best to come by boat. The lift bridge in Spencerport is being refurbished this summer and is locked in the up position. This is good for canal passage, but no auto traffic over the bridge. This is bad for local business and restaurants. Please stop for lunch or dinner as you pass by.
  • Delightfully quaint canalside museum. Small space but cool exhibits and lots of friendly volunteers. Stop in for a nice chat!
