Keeseville is a hamlet in Clinton and Essex counties, New York, in the United States. The population was 1,815 at the 2010 census. The village is named after the Keese family, early settlers from Vermont. It developed along the Ausable River, which provided water power for mills and industrial development.Keeseville is in the towns of Au Sable and Chesterfield and is south of the city of Plattsburgh. It is located inside what are now the boundaries of Adirondack Park, which was authorized in the 20th century.On January 23, 2013, the town's selectboard voted to dissolve the village. As of 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau continues to list Keeseville as a village. It should eventually be redefined as a census-designated place.HistoryThe hamlet was originally called "Anderson Falls" by settlers from New England, who moved into the area following the American Revolutionary War and forcing of Iroquois tribes off their lands. The name was changed circa 1812 to "Keeseville", after a local manufacturer and businessman. The early hamlet was an industrial area devoted, in part, to lumber, iron processing and milling. There has also been a strong French Canadian influence, and many ethnic French have historic ties to the area. The Catholic cathedral, St. John's, was designed in a French style. As population moved west across New York and later to more urbanized areas, the village declined in population.Make your own Keeseville vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States route planning site.
