The small town of Brockport is in Monroe County, New York, just west of the city of Rochester. It was founded in 1820, and became a busy port on the Erie Canal. The proprietors of discount hotels in Brockport welcome their guests to “The Victorian Village on the Erie Canal”. Part of the community has been remodeled to reflect its historic importance. There is a brick walkway, artistic displays, and a new canal interpretive center for visitors.
The Erie Canal ceased to be an important commercial waterway with the coming of railroads and the opening of the New York State Barge Canal. However, it is still very popular with pleasure boaters. Through its Canalfront Hospitality Program, Brockport has become a major attraction for boaters. The Welcome Center offers state-of-the-art facilities and service for boaters who want to stay overnight. All of its staff are volunteers. There is a bicycle lending program for visitors who want to explore the village. Whether you are sleeping aboard your boat, or staying in a cheap hotel in Brockport, be sure to take a walking tour of this quaint community. The main historic site is the Morgan-Manning House. This grand Victorian home was built in 1854, and was badly damaged by fire in 1964. It has been thoroughly restored and authentically furnished. Tours must be booked in advance.
