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

The town was first settled around 1791 by Palatine Germans from Oppenheim, Germany.

Oppenheim was established in 1808 from the Town of Palatine in Montgomery County before the formation of Fulton County. When Fulton County was formed in 1838, the south part of Oppenheim was used to form the Town of St. Johnsville, which remained in Montgomery County.

The early occupations of townspeople were associated with dairy and cheese-making activities.
