5. The Settlement of Almond, New York (partly in Steuben County)

Almond Village, first settled in 1803, was destined to become the commercial center of the town although it had the disadvantage of being located in the extreme eastern portion of the town astride the boundary with Steuben County. This disadvantage, however, was offset by two important factors so necessary in those early days. The first was the Canacadea Creek with its substantial flow of water to furnish power for the mills and the Bath and Lake Erie Turnpike Road that provided transportation and communication with outside

communities.

Almond Village today lies in two counties, principally in Allegany but with its northern portion in Steuben County. At the time of its first settlement the village was entirely within Steuben County. Its present location came about in this manner:

On March 8, 1796 Steuben County was formed from a part of Ontario County andthe town of Canisteo, of which Almond became a part, was formed. The newsettlement was described as Number 4 Settlement but officially it was known asTownship Number 4 in the 7th Range of Townships. The earliest settlers inAlmond took part in the town meetings at Canisteo.
