A Brief History of Plattsburgh

Prior to the 17th century, the Iriquois inhabited the Plattsburgh region. The French then settled in the area after it was discovered by French explorer Samuel de Champlain around 1609. Eventually, the French lost control to England who later lost control to America.

In 1785 the land was gifted to Zephaniah Platt1 of Poughkeepsie, NY and the town of Plattsburgh was founded.

In 1815 the village of Plattsburgh incorporated and separated itself from the town of Plattsburgh. The village of Plattsburgh became the city of Plattsburgh in 1902.
