History

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

The first settler arrived around 1788.

The town was formed from parts of the Towns of Greenfield and Northumberland in 1801. The Town of Corinth was taken from Hadley in 1818, and the Town of Day was removed in 1819, bringing the Town of Hadley to its current dimensions.

In 1930, the Conklingville Dam by the west town line helped create the Sacandaga Reservoir and controlled flooding.

The Hadley Mountain Fire Observation Station and Hadley Parabolic Bridge are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
