The Village of East Rochester actually started out as the Village of Despatch in 1897. Despatch was laid out as a planned community designed around the rail roads. Much of the original land which became the village came from Fairport businessman Walter Parce. This land was used to develop housing for employees of the earliest employers: The Merchants Despatch Corporation and the Aeolian Piano Corporation. The original buildings of the Aeolian Piano Corporation are still in use today as a shopping center and office complex called Piano Works Mall.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 3.5 square kilometers. None of the area is covered with water. The boundaries of the village were divided between the towns of Perinton, Pittsford, and Penfield. In 1982 the residents of the village voted to become a coterminous town and village.
