Spencerport Depot & Canal Museum, Spencerport

The Depot serviced Spencerport as a stop on the Rochester Lockport Buffalo interurban trolley line from 1908 to 1931.

In the 1940'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.

  • Nice little place conveniently located to check out a little history of the modern marvel called the Erie Canal. Highly recommend a visit and a stop to a local restaurant. I'd recommend Texas BBQ Joint.
  • A beautifully restored trolley Depot that now acts as a welcoming center for all. There are beautiful displays and a board loaded with brochures. Also available to those traveling by boat or bike is bathroom facilities including showers. I definitely recommend this museum.
