History

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

The area was visited by farmers and trappers in the 18th century. By the early part of the 20th century Stamford reached its peak as a tourist area, mostly aided by the arrival of the Ulster & Delaware Railroad from Kingston in 1872. (Passenger service lasted until March 31, 1954; freight service until September 28, 1976.) The village was incorporated in 1870.
