In 1785, Abel Kidder and his brother John traveled from western Massachusetts and settled in an area on the west branch of the Delaware River. Others soon followed, including Gideon Frisbee and Thomas Farrington. Frisbee converted his log house into a tavern to serve the growing settlement as well as travelers through the area. The community continued to grow and in 1798, the Town of Delhi was formed.
