Kniste Stota was the historic name of the village, a term used by the local Oneida Nation of the Iroquois Confederacy, meaning "cluster of pines near still waters".[ citation needed ] The village recently celebrated the bicentennial of its settlement by European-Americans.

One early historic property is the Judge Nathan S. Roberts House, which dates to about 1820. [3]

Canastota is well known as an onion-growing town, and that effort used to account for a large portion of the income in the village. [4]

The village was incorporated in 1835, but was reorganized in 1870. Located along the banks of the Erie Canal, which was completed through the Mohawk River valley by 1825, Canastota was a vibrant trading and commerce town during the mid-nineteenth century for a wide agricultural area. When the canal was superseded by construction of railroads, and later the New York Thruway, some canal towns were cut off from the main lines of commerce.

Canastota is home of the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Having produced two world champions in Carmen Basilio and Billy Backus, Canastota was a natural choice as a site for the museum and outdoor stage. The museum is located a short distance from the New York State Thruway.

Each second weekend in June, Canastota has hosted numerous past and current champions, including Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Joe Frazier. A Sunday parade and an induction ceremony is held to honor past and current Hall of Fame inductees.
