The small town of Victor, NY, has retained the quiet nature and village feel, located in Ontario County, approximately 21 minutes from Rochester (the third-largest city in the state), with a population of around 14,275 people. It is named after an American hero in the War of 1812, Claudius Victor Boughton!
