Located in the east-central section of the Town of Bergen, the Village of Bergen is in the northeast corner of Genesee County and directly borders Monroe County, approximately 25 miles southwest of Rochester.
Curiously, this sleepy little village has a number of important corridors running through or very near it. Route 33A connects Bergen to I-490 at exit 2 and routes 33 and 19 run through the village, connecting it to Sweden, SUNY Brockport, Churchville and Le Roy. Route 262 takes you to Byron.
Garbage is collected on Wednesdays (as of August 2007).
School age youth are served by Byron-Bergen Central Schools.

Useful Tidbits For New/Prospective Residents
Incorporated as the Village of Bergen in 1877, the area was first settled in 1805. When the first railroad came in 1836, the area now known as Bergen was alternately known as Cork (by its Irish residents), Wardville (in honor of the Levi Ward family who brought the railroad and developed the land around it), High Bergen and Lower Bergen.
Due to a series of fires in the mid-nineteenth century, Bergen enacted an ordinance requiring all structures be built out of brick, stone or wrought iron. As a result, much of the western portion of the village is in the National Register of Historic Places.
