The Page Family Legacy
This post on Gertrude Page will conclude our three-part series of the Page family.
Because many residents might have fond memories or anecdotes of Gertrude, who lived in Brockport on Gordon Street until her 1962 death, after you read the post, please share your stories in a comment at the bottom. It’s the next generation of preservation!

The Emily L. Knapp Museum is a municipal museum associated with the Village of Brockport.
The museum is located on the second and third floors in the former home of one of Brockport’s most prominent families, the Seymours, while the first floor contains the Village of Brockport offices.
Those who visit Brockport’s collection of local history will feel they’ve entered a time when the Erie Canal was the bustling commercial center of this Victorian village: when ladies wore high-laced shoes and skirts that scraped the slate sidewalks, and the gentlemen sported tall silk hats; when phonographs and stereopticon views as well as novels by our famed authoress, Mary Jane Holmes, entertained the masses. Don’t take our word for it, see for yourself.
