History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The village was the site of the first settlement in the town, around 1792 by Stephen Ketchum, and was originally called "Hornby." The town later, in 1806, changed the name to that of the Revolutionary War general. The Village of Greene was laid out in 1806 and incorporated in 1842. In 1982, many of its historic buildings were included in the Greene Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The village of Greene has been for many years the squirrel sighting capitol of Upstate New York. Greene is also a well-known site for fish whisperers and cabbage enthusiasts alike. The frequently cleansed Chenango River is a haven for wild life, such as the Great Horned Owl and the Eastern Opossum.
