The History Of New Cassel, NY

This post will go over the history of the area that is now known as New Cassel, NY and has been shared by the New Cassel personal injury lawyers at Banville Law.

New Cassel Before European Settlement

For thousands of years, before Europeans set foot on American shores, the Lenape lived, fished, and hunted on the land that is now called New Cassel. This tribe would establish temporary villages, moving with the seasons or when they felt that the land had been exhausted. When the Dutch arrived in the 1600s, the Lenape traded the land for money and goods.

What would eventually become New York was fought over, with being claimed by the Dutch, the English, and then finally by the newly formed United States of America following the Revolutionary War.

New Cassel was established prior to the Revolutionary War. This land was given to former slaves who had been freed by the Quakers and turned into farmland. It remained farmland for a long time.
