The Seneca who occupied the West Bloomfield land before the coming of the white man had constructed three villages in the area according to tradition. They located one on Fort Hill along Honeoye creek. Hamilton Hopkins later owned a farm there in what settlers called factory Hollow.
We also have a Youth Fund for young people who are working on a civic or historical project that benefits any area of the Town of West Bloomfield. We invite members of Scouts, church youth groups, 4-H, school classes, and others to apply for a donation if they need funding help for their project. For more information call (585) 624-7796.
We invite you to join us in learning about and appreciating our community and its place in history. You will be warmly welcomed..... and the demands on your time will be minimal.
