The History of Otsego, NY 
Unadilla Village

UNADILLA VILLAGE

is pleasantly located on the Susquehanna River, and contains four churches, an academy, mills, stores, etc., and has a population of about 1200. A noticeable feature of the village is its miles of stone walks. The streets are also kept in fine condition, and are beautifully shaded by trees which line the walk on either side. While much attention has been bestowed upon public improvements, private grounds have also received their share of attention, and art has vied with nature in rendering many of the residences and grounds in Unadilla among the finest in this section.
