The Land that now comprises New York State was Purchase for 10 000. 00 Hartford Convention awarded Massachusetts 6 000 000 acres, which includes what was later to become Tioga County. 230 000 acres of this land became known as Boston Ten Town Purchase and was sold to sixty land speculators for a sum of little less than 5 000 payable over a two-year period. The town of Tioga was surveyed and plat by Peter W. Yates and associates. It has become known as a€œyates location. A€ Some of the early settlers in a€œyates locationa€ were Ransom, Schoonover, Draper, Canfield, and Alden. On March 22 1788, legislature was passed to organize the Town of Chemunga, which had the same boundaries as the present Town of Tioga. This designation was changed by legislation on February 16 1791 when the County of Tioga was form. Portion of the Town of Chemunga became a new town called Owego; which it was from 1791 to 1813. By act of April 12 1813, names of two towns, Owego on the west side of Owego Creek, Tioga on the east side, were exchanged one for other and remain as such today. The present boundaries of the Town of Tioga are as follow: easterly, by Owego Creek, which separates it from the Town of Owego, southerly, by Susquehanna River, which is the Town of Nichols: westerly, by Town of Barton: northerly, by the towns of Candor and Spencer. The town of Tioga includes 35 805 acres, which are primarily upland with small areas of riverbed flats. Chief watercourses are the Pipe and Catatonk Creeks. Major William Ransom built three sawmills and two gristmills on Pipe Creek. Major Ransom also built the first log house in Tioga, in the area that BB Franklinas flouring mill would later be erect. David Pixley built the first gristmill on Owego Creek sometime around 1793. Prior to the building of the gristmill, grain had to travel to Wilkes-Barre by canoe. The trip usually takes about two weeks. The town of Tioga has several hamlets, Tioga Center, Smithboro, Halsey Valley, Straits Corners and Goodrich Settlement. Thomas Nicholson bought 2000 acres, including what is now Halsey Valley. He had a daughter born after his untimely death. My daughter died at the age of eighteen and this area was known as aGirlas Flata for many years afterward.

The County Historian is responsible for collecting and preserving materials pertaining to the county's history. Leave to Right: Hiawatha Island, Hiawatha House Hotel, Glove Factory, Cady House, Trolley House Do you ever wonder what North Avenue looked like before the underpass was built and why and when? To begin, it was after Frederica Ford was killed at East Temple Street Railroad crossing on May 7 1930 that Erie Railroad Company first proposed elimination of crossings at East Temple, Paige and Greene Streets in the Village. Then, on Christmas Eve, December 24 1931, Jam F. Bell was killed at East Temple Street crossing. At a meeting held in November 1932, the Public Service Commission announced the closing of four crossings: East Temple, Paige, McMaster and the busiest one of all, North Avenue, located just south of East and West Avenues. They first suggested building overpass, rather than underpass, but nothing was decide. Then, on February 22 1933, tragedy struck again when Daniel Champlain met his death at Paige Street crossing. Three months later, on May 16, preliminary hearing was held at Tioga County Courthouse with forty residents from affected areas attending. After a lot of discussion between railroad officials and the Village board of trustees, nothing came of it. Mayor Albert S. Andrews and the Village attorney, Benjamin W. Loring, declined to make a statement. At the July 28 1933 hearing, first plan for the proposed elimination of North Avenue crossing was submitted at a cost of 238 800, exclusive of rights-of-way and property damage. The plan was offered by the State Department of Public Works and provides for construction of an underpass on North Avenue instead of an overpass as first suggest. The Plan includes an underpass to extend from Fox Street to the intersection of East and West Avenues for a total length of 1 141 feet. Approaches would have 5 % grade and the roadway would be 40 feet wide with six-foot sidewalks on both sides. There would also be 14-foot overhead clearance from the road to the 49-foot span of two-plate girder Railroad bridge above it. Heavy concrete walls would be constructed and concrete stairs with railings would be built to allow people access to their adjoining properties from North Avenue. The Village Mayor and the board of trustees do not like the idea of closing off streets and making them dead-end because it would depreciate the property value. Instead, they suggest that the Railroad Company build a lateral road from East Main Street crossing to Paige Street, South of tracks, so people could simply drive on out through Fox Street to North Avenue. However, businessmen of Owego object, saying that it would divert traffic from businesses in the Village.
