Town of Caroline

Barbara Kone
Town Historian
Patricia Brhel
Deputy Historian

Caroline was first settled around 1800 on land in the Watkins and Flint Purchase. Some settlers brought with them slaves from the South or the Hudson Valley. In 1811, the town was incorporated and named; it became part of Tompkins County in 1823. Today, the population of Caroline is 2,910; its residents scattered throughout the commanding hills or gathered in Brooktondale and Slaterville Springs–where the water from a sulphur spring colors glass objects.
