Over 100 painted quilts adorn barns, houses, sheds, and garages in the Town of LeRoy. Pick up an illustrated map at numerous places in LeRoy and follow four different routes through some of the most picturesque scenery in Western New York. The barn quilts are part of the Bicentennial Celebration of the Town of LeRoy that began in 2012.
Lady Liberty’s “Little Sister” stands proudly on the bank of the Oatka Creek in LeRoy. Originally dedicated in 1950 , LeRoy’s statue is one of less than 100 that have survived (at one time, there were more than 200 “Little Sisters” across the United States). The community raised over $15,000 in 2016 to have the statue repaired. At only 8-feet tall, she is the same size as the index of the finger of her big sister in New York Harbor
The JELL-O Gallery Museum is located behind the Historic LeRoy House (home of the town’s founding family), and it’s open year-round. LeRoy’s unique history also includes Ingham University, a pioneer in women’s education, as well as a 17-mile documented driving tour of the Underground Railroad.
Golfers will enjoy a beautiful 18-hole golf course, while avid anglers enjoy trout fishing along Oatka Creek. Others will prefer visiting the many antique and craft shops. On Saturday nights during the summer, midget-class racing is featured at Limerock Speedway just east of LeRoy. Farm markets are filled with local produce, gifts, fresh fruits and vegetables. Visit LeRoy’s Farmer’s Market in Trigon Park in the center of the village on Saturday morning.
