About Palmyra

The region was part of the Phelps and Gorham Purchase. The Town of Palmyra, originally called "Swift's Landing", was formed in 1789 before Ontario County was established. It is named after the ancient city Palmyra in Syria. In 1808, parts of Palmyra were used to form the new Town of Macedon (in Wayne County) and other townships in Ontario County: Wheatland (1809), Seneca (1821), Lima (1823). In 1817, part of Palmyra—the northeastern portion including what are now Westmoreland and Mendon—was used to form another town also named Macedon; this one became a village known as East Macedon until it dissolved into three parts around 1895 when they rejoined with their original parent town once again becoming today's Village Of Canandaigua which is located on Lake Canandaigua at 43°51′N 77°27′W / 43.85083°N 77.
