Henrietta was carved out from a parcel of Pittsford land in 1818, and consisted almost exclusively of farmland and an agricultural economy, including a large Ellwanger and Barry nursery, through the early days of the 20th Century.
There was minimal commercial development there prior to the addition of a New York State Thruway exit in 1954 and the arrival of the Genesee Valley Regional Market shortly afterward.
For a more detailed history, see Henrietta at the Crossroad of Monroe County, on the town web site.
Marketplace Mall, and the Jefferson Road area in general create the perception of widespread retail congestion, but more than three-quarters of the town was zoned as residential at the start of the 21st Century.
The Rush-Henrietta School District has shrunk from the days when it had two high schools, two junior high schools and an elementary school in every neighborhood, but it's still big.
