A Look Back...

This historic village, incorporated in 1894 as a railroad town, is one of the largest villages in Western New York. One of the earliest settlers in the area was Appolos Hitchcock, who came in 1808 to settle south of Broadway along Cayuga Creek, west of Bordon Road. He served as a liaison and agent between the Holland Land Company and the Indians, who respected him. It is said the earliest settlers in the area cut trees in the vast forests and sold the wood in Buffalo and to ships in the port.
