History

The area was a location where the Stockbridge Indians relocated around 1780, assisted by Quakers and was called the New Stockbridge Territory. These natives of New England accepted an invitation of the Oneida tribe to relocate in New York. Subsequent disagreements with the influx of white settlers caused the Stockbridge group to relocate to Indiana and later to Wisconsin.

The town was first settled in 1791 by white pioneers. The town was formed in 1836 from parts of four other towns.
