In 1804, Daniel Spencer bought a farm about 1½ miles (3 km) north of Ogden Center. When the Erie Canal opened, the farm, through which the canal passed at the Canawaugus Road, was sold to become the first village lots. As a port on the canal, the area was called Spencer's Basin and later changed to Spencerport.
On April 22, 1867 the New York State Legislature incorporated Spencerport as a Village and William Slayton was elected as its first mayor.
