OUR RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY


The Town of Wheatland was first established in 1821 and is made up of several smaller communities including the Village of Scottsville, and the Hamlets of Mumford, Garbutt, Belcoda, Beulah and Wheatland Center.

Many of the original older homes in Whealtland date back to the early 1800's - visitors can recognize these houses by the historical marker on the front that notes the approximate date in which the house was built. In general, our residents take pleasure in the small town life of farms, woods, and parks nearby, but also enjoy the convenience of being just 10 miles southwest of downtown Rochester, NY.

Residents are served by 2 school districts, Wheatland Chili and Caledonia Mumford Central Schools. To learn more regarding Wheatland's first-rate schools, visit the links below.
