The first settlers arrived around 1773. During the American Revolution, the settlers, having been warned by a friendly Oneida Indian about an enemy raid, abandoned their farms until after the war. The town was resettled in 1793.

The Town of Marcy was formed in 1832 from part of the Town of Deerfield, located to the east.

In 1920, the population of Marcy was 1,919.

The Neck Canal of 1730 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
