In 1787, a wealthy Philadelphia banker named William Bingham saw a vision for a new community at the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers. However, Bingham died in 1804, before his vision was fully realized. It was left to Bingham’s land agent, Joshua Whitney, to forge ahead with the settlement’s streets, bridges, and courthouse.
