In 1785, John Doolittle arrived in present day Broome County from New England, cleared land and established a farm, becoming the first permanent settler of the area. Doolittle was soon joined by David Hotchkiss, Frederick Goodell and John Garnsey. Within twenty years from John Doolittle’s arrival, the population had grown to 1,000, and in 1807 the town of Windsor was established.
