Hillsdale, New York, USA

In 1724 Massachusetts, under a grant from the crown of England claimed jurisdiction over Columbia County and at the same time, New York claimed jurisdiction over much of Berkshire County. This boundary dispute was settled by compromise about 1773 but not perfected until 1787. The settlers in Kakeout, later Nobletown (now Hillsdale) were mostly from Massachusetts and a few from Connecticut with some Dutch settlers in the northern part.

Both Nobletown and Spencertown were the first New England settlements established within Claverack's alleged borders both being named after the principal founding families.
