             The Museum has been opened for thirteen years with the help of an exceptional group of volunteers.  We are inviting current as well as new volunteers to join us on Wednesday May 15th during the hours of 9:30am to 5pm at the Spencerport Depot and Canal Museum, 16 East Avenue in the Village of Spencerport.  Refreshments will be served all day as a small thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers.

             The Museum, housed in a historic trolley depot, will be open from May through October.  Detailed hours are available on the website: and in a future article.  The Museum continues to attract more visitors.  In the last three years, we have seen over 13,000 visitors.  

            This year’s displays include a collection of telephones and other   memorabilia from the Ogden Telephone Company.  Additionally, you can see a model of the Spencerport Lift Bridge and actually be the Bridge Tender – something for the whole family to enjoy!

             Because of the increased awareness of this unique Canal Museum, we are always looking for new volunteers to help welcome our visitors.  We hope that we will see you on Wednesday May 15th and ask that you bring a friend to join you. 

             For questions, please contact Museum Director, Simon Devenish, at 585-352-0942 or via email:
