Victor is a town in Ontario County, New York located Southeast of Rochester.
Victor’s strategic location led to extensive suburban growth in the late 20th and early 21st century.
Victor is the largest of Rochester’s suburbs to be located outside of Monroe County
the home of more than two-thirds of the Greater Rochester population.
The Village of Victor is 12 miles from the head of Canandaigua Lake the fourth largest of the Finger Lakes
The town is named after Claudius Victor Boughton, an American hero of the War of 1812.
An important Seneca village, known as Gannagaro or Ganondagan, was located within the area of this town. The tribe abandoned the village and the area about it after being severely attacked in 1687 by French invaders from Canada.
In 2015, New York opened a museum and cultural center on the grounds of the Ganondagan State Historic Site, established in 1987. The Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan will use art, history and education, drawn from oral history, written documents, and archeological evidence, to tell the story of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) of the Seneca nation.
Pioneer settlement by European Americans began around 1789. The Town of Victor was formed in 1812. The area was initially developed for agriculture.
