Neighborhoods

Penfield borders Brighton on the southeast. It is named for Daniel Penfield, who bought the land in 1810. Irondequoit Bay, extending down into the northwest corner, Ellison Park in the southwest corner, and hills and dense forest lands scattered throughout the 38 square miles of the township, make up a diversified landscape. Penfield, East Penfield, and Penfield Center, none of them incorporated, are included in the township.

The Penfield quarries of the Dolomite Products Corporation and the Redman Sand and Stone Quarry Company supply much of the material used by Rochester for street and road improvements. [1]
