History of Westtown

Westtown is a hamlet located in the town of Minisink in Orange County, New York, United States. It is situated in the southwestern part of the county, near the border with Pennsylvania.

The area was first settled in the late 17th century by European colonists, primarily of Dutch and English descent. The name "Westtown" was derived from the fact that the town was located to the west of Middletown, which was a major center of commerce and industry in the region at the time.

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Westtown became an important center of agriculture, particularly dairy farming. The town also had a number of small mills and factories, producing goods such as lumber, textiles, and leather.

During the 20th century, Westtown experienced significant growth and development, particularly after World War II. The town saw the construction of new housing developments, commercial centers, and public facilities, such as schools and parks.

Today, Westtown remains a growing community, with a diverse economy and a strong sense of community pride. The town is home to a number of cultural and recreational attractions, including parks, museums, and historical sites, and is a popular destination for tourists and visitors to the Hudson Valley region.
