History

The area was first settled around 1792 and was originally called "Forks" or "Madison Forks" until the current name was adopted around 1835 after development of the Chenango Canal. After canal transportation waned, railroad service helped community commerce.

Earlville became an incorporated village in 1887. The Earlville Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The Earlville Opera House was listed in 1973.[1]
