Valentown Museum

7370 Valentown Square, Victor, New York 14564 USA

“containing literally thousands of artifacts, objects, & heirlooms”

Valentown is a intriguing Historical Museum located in Victor, New York. It contains literally thousands of artifacts, objects and heirlooms that represent the local 19th century history of the Victor and Rochester, New York area. Valentown was originally built in 1879 as a shopping plaza and community center by Levi Valentine. Today it stands as a monument to his inspiration for building a town on top of his own family farm land. Levi Valentine had built Valentown next to land where a railroad was supposed to arrive. Unfortunately, the company that was building the railroad ran out of funds and tracks before they could reach Valentown. Finally, Valentown was vacated and left untouched. In the 1940's, historian J. Sheldon Fisher's goal was to preserve Valentown as a Historical Museum.   Eventually, Mr. Fisher united Valentown with the Victor Historical Society.  Five years prior to his passing at age 95 the Victor Historical Society bought the property and collection to ensure enjoyment and education for future generations.

Nice local museum with tons of artifacts that relate to the area. The place is of particular interest if you're into Spiritualism, as Rochester is considered the birthplace of the movement.
