SCENIC TOUR R - A Little History
The village was settled in 1861 when the construction of the Albany & Susquehanna Railroad started, a fashionable residential neighborhood developed along either side of Main Street. These properties are part of the Delanson Historic District and exhibit a variety of picturesque American architectural styles, including late Victorian.
Settled in the early 18th century, Duanesburg still remains a characteristically rural area. The town's layout is much the same as it was throughout the 19th century -- large farmsteads with hamlets and villages.
