Whitestown, New York, USA

The Town of Whitestown was formed in 1788, before the creation of Oneida County, with a size of 12 million acres. Whitestown was founded by Hugh White after he scouted the land in 1784 by way of traveling the Mohawk River. On June 5, 1784, White and his family came upon the mouth of the Sauquoit Creek and settled in the forests that would become Whitestown.
