Come visit LeRoy, a historic village, with tree lined streets and classic Victorian houses, only five minutes from I 490 and Exit 47 of the New York State Thruway.

LeRoy is one of the most beautiful villages in Western New York, nestled along the scenic Oatka Creek. Only an hour from Niagara Falls and 30 minutes from downtown Rochester, LeRoy’s bed and breakfast accommodations and restaurants offer a relaxed, quiet atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby cities.

LeRoy’s unique history includes the Birthplace of Jell-O, “America’s Most Famous Dessert” in 1897. LeRoy was once the home of Ingham University, the first women’s university in the United States, founded in 1837 and chartered in 1856. LeRoy is also the birthplace of the stringless bean, cultivated by Calvin Keeney. One of the more interesting features of LeRoy, is the documented route of the Underground Railroad, which can be explored by a 17 mile driving tour. The rich history of LeRoy is preserved by the LeRoy Historical Society at the historic 1822 LeRoy House at 23 East Main Street. Each summer, the Historical Society features a new Jell-O exhibit in the recently renovated 1898 High School, located behind LeRoy House.
