Welcome to Covington, NY


The town of Covington is in northeast Wyoming County, bordered to the north by Pavilion in Genesee County; to the east by York, Livingston County; to the south by Perry; and to the west by Middlebury. Covington, which has only about 1,250 residents, includes the hamlets of Covington, LaGrange, Pearl Creek, Peoria, and Spragues Corners. Dairy farming is the predominant business in this mainly residential and agricultural community, along with some wheat and corn farming.

Center St. A smaller food store, Dourie’s Shop Wise, is 5 miles west in the town of Wyoming. Wegmans and Top’s Friendly Markets stores are in Geneseo, about 13 miles east, and a Top’s, Save-a-Lot and Lantz’s Bulk Foods are in Warsaw, 14 miles southwest of Covington.  

Recreation & Entertainment

Outdoor activities, like hunting and hiking, are big in Covington, as they are throughout much of this rural, wide-open county. Letchworth State Park is about 19 miles away at both the Castile entrance and the Mt. Morris entrance (in Livingston County).

Transportation & Traffic

Route 246 runs north-south through the heart of Covington. Route 63, just east of Covington, and Route 19, just west of town, also are nearby. Route 63 often is heavily traveled by trucks.

Pros & Cons

If you like small-town living with wide-open spaces and plenty of picturesque farmland, Covington will be to your liking. Route 63, a major nearby highway, has seen dramatic and significant increases in truck traffic since the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the state Department of Transportation has been studying travel on the corridor.
