The Seneca people in the Iroquois Confederacy once hunted and fished in the Irondequoit area. Following the American Revolution, early settlers drained the swamps, cleared the land and planted crops. By the late 1800s, Irondequoit farms were famous for their peaches, melons, vegetables and orchards. During their peak, Irondequoit nurseries supplied over 2 million apple trees per year to customers around the U.S.
