Islamic Center of Rochester was established in 1975. The Muslim population in the Greater Rochester area has grown from a few in the late 1960s to many thousands today. The Islamic Center membership consists of Muslims born in the United States and those who have accepted Islam and the immigrants who come from most of the Muslim countries of the world. The present active membership of the Islamic Center exceeds 500 families. Building of the Islamic Center of Rochester was completed in 1985. It is located on 4 acres of prime land within 10 minutes of downtown Rochester and the major area universities and colleges. It has over 8000 square feet of floor space, which includes prayer and multipurpose halls, offices, library and kitchen. There is a picnic shed adjacent to a pond for summer recreation. The property is fully paid for. To meet the growing needs of the Muslim community, an expansion project of the center is currently underway, which will add additional office space and a gymnasium to the center. In 2005 the center launched an Islamic school for classes K-3.
