Genesee County

You’ll find us along New York’s Main Street (Route 5) or directly off the New York State Thruway (I-90) at Exits 47 (LeRoy) 48 (Batavia) and 48A (Pembroke). We’re centrally located, just a 30-minute drive between both Buffalo and Rochester, and only 45 minutes from the thunderous Niagara Falls!

For centuries, Western New York was the home of the Iroquois Nation. After the Revolutionary War, most of the Seneca migrated to Ontario, Canada, but the Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians split from the rest of the tribe and settled in the region. The Holland Land Purchase opened the county to European settlement in 1801. Frontier families used well-worn Indian trails, which eventually became the roads you see today, and established Genesee as a meeting place.
