Brief History

The town of Stockbridge was chartered on July 21, 1761 and the first town meeting was held on March 27, 1792. Most of the grantees were residents of Massachusetts, so it seems certain that the town was named for that Stockbridge.

The post office is located in the villiage of Gaysville, which derives its name from the families of Daniel and Jeremiah Gay.[1][2]
