History

The community was known early in its history as "Pubesville." Norwood as it is known today, grew out of the shadows of Potsdam, New York in the 1870s. In 1871 the growing Potsdam hamlet became a village entered into existence as the "Village of Potsdam Junction."

Villagers later wanted to further distinguish the town by disassociating its name with Potsdam and submitted proposal to the federal government to become the Village of Baldmen but it was discovered that there was already a post office named Baldmen. A short time later on April 15, 1875 a new name was voted on and Norwood was selected. The mayor of Norwood is currently Mike Colby.
