FULL TITLE: Historical and Statistical Gazetteer of New York State: Embracing a Comprehensive View of the Geography, Geology, and General History of the State, and a Complete History and Description of Every County, City, Town, Village, and Locality, with Full Tables of Statistics. When it was completed in 1860, the Historical and Statistical Gazetteer of New York State was a unique work. Developed originally to compliment a map that was produced from totally new field surveys, the gazetteer presents a wide variety of information on the people and places within the Empire State. Today this gazetteer is a researchers dream. It contains detailed information on most of the business up to that time within the state, information on early land grants and descriptions of places, communities, events, and personal observations of the times. Well documented, much of this information could not be assembled in modern times as the original records have long since been destroyed. For those researching events of history or the people that made up the Empire State prior to 1860, this Gazetteer is often the first reference work sought out. For those that wish to learn more about their communities in a bygone era, we highly recommend this as a tool.
