Brief History

The town was originally chartered on June 19, 1753. The town was granted as Fane (spelled both Faine and Fane in the Grant), but the French and Indian War prevented the first town meeting from taking place within the required five years.  In 1772 the governor granted the name change to New Fane, and the first town meeting was held in May of 1774. The village was renamed as Newfane in 1882. [1][2]
