The History of Village of  Union and Village of Endioctt

by Ted Warner

The unmatched & amazing history of Endicott

Every 3 years we do a program on the history of the Village of Union and Endicott.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, and relate those 2 stories and we need to keep our history details fresh in our mind for questions we get and so we know about the place we live.

Village of Union settlers arrived after the Revolutionary War.

The community grew one family at a time.

After 90 years they incorporated as a village in 1871.

Village of Endicott was “created” from dairy farms in 1901 by George F. Johnson to expand his Endicott Johnson Shoe Corp.

Endicott incorporated after only 5 years in 1906.

Endicott is a company town - built by the company, and for the company.

It became the birthplace of IBM.

Both villages merged in 1921 as “Endicott”.
