"Deland Chemical Company" Fairport Favorite Tip by Stephen-KarenConn
Fairport Favorites: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Favorite thing: Although present day Fairport is, to a large extent, a bedroom community of metropolitan Rochester, buildings such as this one, on the canal at Main Street, are a reminder that Fairport was once a hard working industrial town along the Erie Canal.
This is the site of the Saleratus Works, established by the DeLand family in 1858. Saleratus (now called baking soda) was produced here and sold internationally, helping develop the Village of Fairport. Today the building is put to other uses, including an Expresso Cafe.
