Perinton, Fairport, and the Erie Canal
This is the first book in the trilogy. The book gives the reader a general look at the community of Fairport and Perinton. You'll see pictures of the Erie Canal which spurred the growth of Fairport beginning in 1825, early industries such as the DeLand Chemical Co. makers of saleratus, Cobb's Preserving and American Can makers of the solderless can, Certo pectin products, and Crystal Springs Water Company.
Communities within the town are described; the Town of Perinton, the Hamlets of Bushnell's Basin and Egypt, and the Villages of Fairport, Despatch and East Rochester.
A special chapter is included on the 1908 Old Home Week celebration in Fairport, a festival which swept through many communities in the Northeast United States and Canada in the early part of the 20th century. Published by Arcadia Press in 2001.
