History

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

The town was first settled around 1797.

The town was formed in 1819 from parts of the Towns of Edinburg and Hadley. The original name of the town was "Concord." Part of the town was flooded in 1930 when the Conklingville dam created the Sacandaga Reservoir (now Great Sacandaga Lake). Some of the historic buildings were saved by moving them to higher ground, while others are now under the surface of the lake.

The David Rayfiel House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
