History

The area was first settled around 1794. Sparta was established in 1789 before the establishment of Livingston County. Eventually, Sparta was diminished by the removal of land for other towns, including Springwater (1816), West Sparta (1846), and Groveland (1856). Sparta also received territory from other towns: Dansville (in Steuben County) (1822) and Groveland (1856).
