New Nature Preserve at Macyville

A Nature Preserve in Macyville

Genesee Land Trust working with the Village of Sodus Point will be opening a new nature preserve here in the village in the Fall of this year. Macyville was the name of the area of Sodus Point around Sentell Street. This location south and east of the village highway barns on Seaman Street extending over to Sentell Street will feature walking trails, but otherwise, be left in a natural state. The site offers a mix of habitats including wooded uplands and shrub-swamp wetlands.

Trail Keepers, a group of volunteers who help Genesee Land Trust with trails on different preserves invite you to join them for a volunteer workday on August 15, from 3 – 5 PM. The plans are to clearly mark new trails and discontinue dead-end ones, pick-up trash and debris, and remove invasive species. Please check their site for the August 15 th, (click here) for details, come help out and preview the area.

The name Macyville recalls Sylvanus Macy, a NYC businessman who believed the Sodus Point area had great potential and featured prominently in local development after the Civil War. It was Macy who built the bank that later became the customs house which stood on Sentell Street until 2001. The site of the new nature preserve is close to the where Macy lived while in Sodus Point on the what is now the corner of Seaman and Macy streets. Tom Lightfoot, our village historian, has written an article about Sylvanus Macy and his impact on local development. Read More about Sylvanus Macy here.
