To many, Perinton and Fairport are one in the same. However, the Town of Perinton was established first, with a rich history of farming and commerce along the canal. The Village of Fairport is an approximately one square mile area within The Town of Perinton. Though Perinton used to be very rural, today most farms are no longer. Instead thriving suburban subdivisions, office and commercial developments, and numerous parks and open spaces have taken their place, creating a dynamic and attractive community!
