Two things dominate life in Brockport. First is its location on the Erie Canal. The village, in fact, calls itself "The Victorian Village on the Erie Canal." This beautiful area is defined by historic homes and a well developed, recently remodeled, canal area. The canal front hospitality program includes a Welcome Center where volunteers greet boaters and visitors and provide all they need to enjoy their stop in Brockport - from fresh coffee and a shower to free internet and laundry facilities. The second predominant feature of life in Brockport is the State University located here. As a college town, the culture is continuously enriched by students and faculty, making the village rich not just in history, but academics and the arts as well.

Good to Know
The Brockport Fire District offers fire protection as well as Ambulance Service; and the Brockport Police Department provides 24-hour patrols in the village. Seymour Library is located at 161 East Avenue (585) 637-1050

Local Museums & Landmarks
Morgan-Manning House, at 49 State St., is a 19th-century homestead that was the site of a fire in 1964. It has been restored and now has a team of volunteers who maintain the house and its furnishings exactly as they looked in the 19-century. Morgan-Manning House is on the National Register of Historic Places.
