Wayneport Historic Area

At one time known as West Macedon, Wayneport was the
first port in Wayne County east of Rochester on the original
Clinton's Ditch. The first post office in Macedon was located here.
On the south side of the present Wayneport bridge over today's
Erie Canal. Parts of the original Clinton's Ditch and the
enlarged Erie Canal may be seen. A short distance to the north
is a cemetery where 26 canal laborers were buried in 1846.
In the mid-19th century Wayneport became an important
part of the New York Central and West Shore railroad systems
when a coaling facility for steam engines was located here. There
were also facilities for sand and ash removal, water tanks, and an
icing facility for refrigerated cars. Westbound trains which took on a full load of coal here could reach Chicago before needing to refuel. For photos and other Macedon canal sites go to www.macedontown.net/canal/ index.php
