Castile, New York, USA - The Daily Cottage, 1906

Castile is a Town in Wyoming County, New York, USA. The Town is named after Castile in Spain.

The first settlement in the Town of Castile was a sawmill built by Robert and Daniel Whaley of Caledonia, NY. Robert and his wife Janet built a log house. The house was soon turned into a tavern and rest stop for travelers and early settlers.

Ziba Hurd and Jonathan Gilbert, from Vermont, were the first settlers of the Village later known as Castile. Ziba Hurd got a title to the land from the Holland Land Co. The title included 400 acres of dense forest and was dated 1816.
