Catskill, New York, USA

Catskill is a town in the southeast part of Greene County, New York, United States. The town contains a village, also called Catskill.

The area of the town was purchased from the natives in 1678, and settlement followed. The town was established March 7, 1788, as part of Albany County. When Greene County was formed on March 25, 1800, Catskill became part of the new county. The town was increased by an addition from the town of Woodstock in 1800, but was later decreased upon the formation of the towns of Cairo (1803) and Athens (1815).
