The first recorded settlers arrived around 1802. The town was named for founder Roswell Hopkins, and was first organized in 1805; it is one of the original ten towns of the county. This town was much larger than the present town, having lost territory on the formation of newer towns of the county, including: Parishville (1814), Lawrence (1828) and Colton (1976), which towns were themselves partitioned as boundary adjustments were made over time.
