History

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

The village was originally called "Anderson Falls," but the name was changed circa 1812 to Keeseville, after a local manufacturer and businessman. The early village was an industrial area devoted, in part, to lumber, iron processing and milling.

In January 2013, voters decided in a referendum by a vote of 268-176 to end the fabled history of the village by dissolving it outright. Keeseville is to revert to the two bordering towns in which it is located. Although the specific dissolution plan was approved unanimously by the Village Board, petitioners successfully qualified it for a further referendum. That vote must be held between 60 and 90 days after the petition was certified August 6, 2013. If approved, the plan will be effective December 2014.
