History

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

The village was founded by Myndert Wemple (1766-1837) and was formerly called Wempsville.

Wampsville was chosen as the seat of Madison County because neighboring Oneida, New York, to the east, and Canastota, New York to the west both wanted the distinction and could not reach a resolution. The county courthouse faces north so that it does not face either locality.
