Honeoye

Honeoye is located within the Town of Richmond, New York.  This quaint community is located at the North End of Honeoye Lake in Ontario County.  The name, Honeoye is believe to have originated from the Iroquois, meaning "lying finger," which was used to describe the lake itself.   The Indian village, in the area of present-day Honeoye Lake Park, was destroyed by General John Sullivan during the Revolutionary War.  Most of the Indian Nations were know to be allied with the British.

 

Many of the Revolutionary War soldiers later settled in the area after the war. Captain Peter Pitts was the first European-American to settle in the area, and thereby established Pittstown (later Richmond) in 1789.  The area, known for its fertile soil, was largely an agricultural community until the early part of the 20th Century.  In the 1920's, the City of Rochester considered the Lake as a source of municipal water, including even building a dam.  This never did take place and now the area has remained very popular with vacationers and lakeside seasonal residents.
