The Town of Greece is 5 miles Northwest of Rochester. The Town of Gates is on south side of Greece, the towns of Parma and Ogden on the west, and Lake Ontario is on the north. The area known as Charlotte, on the eastern border of Greece, was formerly part of the town until it was annexed by the City of Rochester in 1916.

The Town of Greece was established by the State Legislature on March 22nd, 1822 as Northampton and was a part of the Town of Gates. See [WWW]History of Greece, NY from the town web site for more information.
