History

The first settlers arrived in this part of the Pulteney Tract in approximately 1797. For a time the area was known as "Harmonyville." However, the actual town was formed in 1808 from the Town of Bath. Part of Pulteney was used to form the Town of Prattsburgh (1813) and part of the Town of Urbana (1848).

The "Pulteney Purchase" or "Pulteney Tract" was a section of land in the region of Steuben County purchased from Robert Morris by several English investors including Sir William Pulteney, 5th Baronet called "The Pulteney Association."
