History

The site of the village was first settled around 1786, but areas south of the village were settled around 1762. The village was once on high ground next to the Sacandaga River valley. When the Sacandaga Reservoir was flooded in 1930, that valley became an arm of the Great Sacandaga Lake.

Northville was incorporated in 1873, setting itself off from the Town of Northampton. The Conklingville Dam, finished in 1929, brought about the expansion of the Great Sacandaga Lake to the edge of the village.
