The town is in the former Central New York Military Tract.

The area was first settled in 1792 at Lorings Corners. In 1829, the town was taken from the south part of the Town of Homer. The town was increased by additional land from the Town of Virgil in 1845.

In 1853, the Village of Cortland (the present City of Cortland) set itself apart by incorporating as a village, and was re-incorporated in 1864.

New York authorized a normal school (now State University of New York at Cortland) to be erected in the region in 1866.
