History

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

The Sullivan Expedition (1779) reached its farthest extent here. Groveland was the site of the Boyd and Parker ambush.

The first settlement occurred in 1792 and was called "Willamsburgh." The town was formed in 1789 before the creation of Livingston County. Part of Groveland was used to form parts of the Towns of Conesus (1819) and Sparta (1856).

There was formerly a Shaker settlement near present-day Sonyea.

The Claud No. 1 Archeological Site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
