Floyd history book available for purchase


TOWN OF FLOYD — “The History of the Town of Floyd, New York,” by Edwin C. Evans, is now available for purchase.

After it was published in the spring, the Town of Floyd now has more copies of the book for sale.

Encompassing the beginning of the township in 1790, the book covers what history was available up to modern times. The role of Floyd during wartime through peace and every-day life is looked at and recorded, including an “Honor Roll” of war veterans from Floyd.

There was local lore as well as verifiable events in town. Trappers, blacksmiths, cheese factories, farmers and even distilleries were all a part of the making of the town.

The late Evans was born and raised in Camroden, a hamlet within the northern section of Floyd. He eventually built his home as an adult there, and spent his final years gathering information with which he used to compile local history for the town he called home. Evans was found in his home where he had passed peacefully two years ago. 

“The History of the Town of Floyd, New York” is now available in the paper back edition at Town Hall in Floyd.

Town clerk hours are: Tuesday, 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.; and Wednesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-8 p.m.

To reserve a copy, call the Town Hall at 315-865-4266, ext. 21.
