History

Prehistoric remains are evidence of an original early native population. The first modern settlement took place near Rutland Center around 1799.

The town was formed from part of the town of Watertown in 1802 before the establishment of Jefferson County. In 1844, an island in the Black River at Felts Mills was annexed from the town of Le Ray.

[3] The Black River defines the north town line, and most of the south town line is the county line of Lewis County.

The community of Black River set itself apart from Rutland and the town of Le Ray by incorporating as a village in 1891.
