Welcome to the Town of Pembroke!
Pembroke or O-a-geh (On the Road) as the Indians referred to it, is located in Township 12, Ranges 3 & 4 of the Holland Purchase, and was named for Pembroke in Wales. It was set off from the Town of Batavia, June 8, 1812 and originally contained the whole of Darien and a small part of Alabama. The northern section was part of the Tonawanda Indian Reservation.
Pembroke today is a heavily traveled area with four major highways, Routes 5, 33, 77 and the New York State Thruway passing through its borders. Exit 48A opens the town to Interstate 90. The advantages of its location are its accessibility to Rochester and Buffalo. Once mostly a farming area it is fast becoming a bedroom community for people who work in neighboring cities. It is a good place to live, raise a family or enjoy retirement. The Town of Pembroke has great potential for industrial development and has many opportunities for all to enjoy.
