HISTORY:

Berne Wooden Bridge NY

Pictured above the covered bridge over the Fox Creek Falls

1795 the Town of Berne, NY was created from a section of the town of Rensselaerville. 1822 the north portion of the town was detached to form the town of Knox. The town was originally called Beaver Dam, then Bern. The present spelling Berne was adopted by the U.S Post Office when established in the middle of the 19th Century

1750 first settlers were Palatine German refugees. These early residents were technically squatters since the land was owned by the Van Rensselaer family as part of the Rensselaerswyck Patent

Berne Massacre

1781 the Dietz family massacre was the only Iroquois attack in the town during the American Revolution.

1839 Anti-Rent Wars. Following the death of Stephen Van Rensselaer III farmers petitioned New York State to provide ownership rights to lands they had occupied, often for generations without legal title, and now were being evicted from by the executors of the estate. The conflict was finally resolved in 1846 by Governor John Young who decreed that the tenants had legal rights of ownership as freeholders.
