History

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

The area of the town was first settled around 1820. New Hudson was set apart as the "Town of Haight" in 1825 from part of the town of Rushford and changed its name to New Hudson in 1837. The original name Haight was that of a militia general, who finally irritated the citizens enough with excessive demands that the people changed the name of the town.
