Settlement occurred around 1712 near Middleburgh village, but the early years were marred by several competing claims to the site, once called Weiser's Dorf, named after its founder, Johann Conrad Weiser, Sr.

The American Revolution caused great hardship due to raids from British territory.

The town was formed along with the county in 1797 and is one of the original towns of Schoharie County.

In 1881, the community of Middleburgh set itself off from the town by incorporating as a village.

In 1941 artist Mary Earley painted the oil and tempera mural Dance of the Hop Pickers in the Middleburgh post office. She had been commissioned by the Treasury's Section of Painting and Sculpture.
