History

The town was settled around 1797 by families from Scotland.In 1803 the town was incorporated into New York as Southampton. The name later changed to Caledonia. The Village of Caledonia was incorporated in 1891.

The village forms many associations with the adjacent hamlet of Mumford (Town of Wheatland), even though they are in different counties. Wheatland was formed from the Town of Caledonia in 1821, when the northern part became Inverness and the southern part remained Caledonia.

The fish hatchery, on the north end of the village was built by Seth Green and is the oldest in the New World.

The Caledonia House Hotel and Clark-Keith House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
