The Town of De Kalb

The Town of DeKalb is located between the St. Lawrence River and the foothills of the Adirondacks and encompasses the hamlet of DeKalb Junction, the Village of Richville, and the hamlets of DeKalb, Kendrew and Bigelow.  William Cooper of Cooperstown arranged the purchase of De Kalb in February of 1803. The Town of DeKalb was officially chartered by the NYS legislature on February 22, 1806.  The first “village” in the township of DeKalb was known as Williamstown or Coopers Village which, by 1814, was a village offering most necessary frontier services. In 1820, when the Coopers were no longer involved, it became known as DeKalb Village. [Click on History in the list on the right for much more information on the history of DeKalb and Richville.]
