Preserving Our Heritage

The community has two government organizations that work to preserve our past through designation of landmarks and historical districts. The Village of Fairport and Town of Perinton each have commissions to implement preservation laws and protect, enhance and perpetuate landmarks and historic districts in Perinton. The groups often work with the NYS office to nominate properties for the National Register of Historic Places.

Community Preservation Efforts

The Society recognizes that individuals, groups and organizations contribute to the preservation of our heritage as they restore and rescue Perinton structures and artifacts of the past. The restoration of several carriage houses in the village of Fairport are examples of this contribution that individuals have made to the community.

The Warners of 74 Roselawn Avenue and the Goods at 8 West Street both have recently restored their barns.

When Lance Warner looked at his barn at 74 Roselawn Avenue, he was undecided about trying to save the building. After all, it was over a 100 years old and not in the best shape. He decided to keep and restore the barn.

A few blocks over from the Warner house, Sandy and Ted Good at 8 West Street restored their carriage house as well. They too had been confronted with a 100 year old structure in need of major repair. 

For more on these carriage house restorations.
