The Village of Bergen, just a short drive from Rochester and Batavia, has a strong connection with its past, a clear eye toward its future and a deep sense of place. With its many Victorian homes, historic downtown, and sidewalks canopied by old-growth trees, people choose Bergen because they want the kind of life and values that characterize America's small towns.
