fairportzipcodevillageTowns.JPG History

Perinton was settled in the late 1700s, with the Village of Fairport becoming an Erie Canal hub in the early 19th Century.

Perinton became a booming suburb of Rochester beginning in the 1950s, mixing residential development with relatively restrained commercial growth. Population growth has slowed in the last decade where the focus of new construction has been a bit further out such as in Victor and other outlying suburbs much not in Monroe County.

For a more detailed history, see [WWW]A Brief History of Perinton, on the town web site.

Perinton Uses Fairport Zip Code

Perinton includes the Village of Fairport, the small area outlined in blue on the graphic 1 to the right. The "Fairport Zip Code", 14450, shown in pink on the graphic, covers all of Fairport. However, it also covers a majority of the Town of Perinton and parts of the Town of Penfield. In fact, there are no "Perinton" addresses; Perinton residences use Fairport, Victor, Pittsford, Penfield, or Macedon mailing addresses.
