Brockport, NY Area Scholarships
Brockport is a village located in the Town of Sweden, with two tiny portions in the Town of Clarkson, in Monroe County, New York, USA. The population was 8,336 at the 2010 census. The name is derived from Hiel Brockway, an early settler.
The Village of Brockport is in the western part of Monroe County, west of the City of Rochester. The village is located north of the junction of New York State Route 19 (north-south) and New York State Route 31 (east-west) at the northern town line of Sweden.
Brockport calls itself the "The Victorian Village on the Erie Canal." Brockport recently remodeled the village portion of the Erie canal, providing a bricked walkway, a brand new canal visitor's center, and several pieces of art.
Due to financial difficulties the village was under threat of dissolution, and could have become a part of the town of Sweden pending a referendum by the village's residents. However, on June 15, 2010 the referendum failed.
