History

The community was first settled around 1794. It was originally known as Cassety Hollow, and was incorporated as the Village of Oriskany Falls in the 1880s.

In the mid and late 1900s, Mr. George Tucker owned a large portion of the town, which he donated to the people, including a church and the local store, "Tucker's Big M." The store, however, was sold in 2004 to the "Shur-Fine" corporation, who had a gas station put in and remodeled the storefront, and then again in 2006 to brothers-in-law Badal Singh and Sukhminder Singh, natives of India.

The First Congregational Free Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
