Member Community: Town of North Collins

The Town of North Collins is comprised of about 30 square miles, largely located between Route 62 and Route 75 between Eden and Gowanda. The Village of North Collins is located on Route 62.

The first settlers came to this area in 1809, 1810 and 1811 during the onset of the War of 1812. They were primarily English Quakers from New England who settled in the hamlets of Lawtons, Shirley and Marshfield, and Rose's Corners (now known as Village of North Collins).

The second wave of settlers arrived from Germany beginning about 1830 and settled in the hamlets of Langford and New Oregon. The third wave of immigrants was largely Italians from the City of Buffalo who came to work on the farms here around 1900 and shortly thereafter. They lived mostly in the Village of North Collins.
