Irish Children's Program of Rochester

The ICP brings an equal number of Catholic and Protestant children, ages 10-14, from Belfast to the Rochester area each July. These children, growing up in an environment of suspicion and animosity, experience shared activities and build understanding which they bring back home after their visit. We offer host families unforgettable memories. For host children, we provide a unique opportunity to introduce them to a different culture. Host children and the Belfast visitors compare and discover shared experiences and the similarities they have even though their guests come from a country hundreds of miles and an ocean away. This is a rewarding experience for children and adults alike who are often proud to include an additional Belfast son or daughter to their family.

The Spencerport Depot and Canal Museum operates out of a restored trolley depot which serviced Spencerport as a stop on the Rochester Lockport and Buffalo interurban trolley line from 1908 to 1931.

Our exhibits and talks focus on the Erie Canal, local Transportation, Communication and local history. We are open May thru October to the general public and all year for groups.
