History

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

The first settler arrived around 1802.

The town was organized in 1805 and is one of the original ten towns of the county. The town was much larger than the present town, having lost territory on the formation of newer towns of the county, including: Parishville (1814), Lawrence (1828) and Colton (1976), which towns were themselves partitioned as boundary adjustments were made.
