The area was settled before 1786, but that was the year of any definite settlement, located by Hagedorns Mills.

The town was formed from part of the Town of Galway in 1796. The early economy was based on forestry with the harvesting of lumber, and the manufacture of pulpwood being important.

It is currently under consideration for a municipal wireless broadband network to be built in it.
