Welcome to Sweden, NY


The Erie Canal passes through the Town of Sweden, helping to define its character. Stretching over 33 square miles, Sweden is bordered by Orleans and Genesee Counties; and is home to the Village of Brockport and its State University. The area is noteworthy for its historical significance with many examples of 19th-century Victorian architecture still surviving; and for its farmland - a rich resource for the entire county. Many working farms can be found in the area, and local produce is available in several locations.

Who Lives Here

Residents of the Town of Sweden include families who enjoy the rural atmosphere and solid school system, young people from SUNY Brockport who live both on and off campus, and a number of seniors who enjoy life in the country and the active programs offered by the town.


Some of the best shopping opportunities found in the outlying townships exist in Sweden. There's a Wegmans, a Walmart, and locally owned stores of all sorts. Most are located in and around Brockport.

Recreation & Entertainment

In the area's largest village, Brockport, and along Brockport Spencerport Road and Rt. 19, you'll find many restaurants and pubs to enjoy; and SUNY Brockport offers all manner of shows - dance, theatre, concerts, fine arts, lectures and sporting events.

Transportation & Traffic

Routes19 (Lake Road) and 31 (Brockport Spencerport Road) are the main thoroughfare in the Town of Sweden; with Colby Road, West Avenue, and Redman Road also carrying a large part of the traffic. Generally speaking, traffic flows quite well in this region, however there can be a backup on Brockport Spencerport Road heading into the village of Brockport.

Pros & Cons

The Town of Sweden offers the best of both worlds, according to many of its residents. It is rural enough to feature expansive farmland and homes with lovely big yards; and also provides everything a family could need to live comfortably. Commute time to the City of Rochester for employment is nearly a half-hour.
