FACTS ABOUT THE TOWN OF BRUTUS' EARLY HISTORY

On May 11, 1783 it was deemed by the New York State Legislature,  that the Townships shall contain 60,000 acres each.  All of this land was wild and uninhabited by non-native people which took time to survey and map.  By July 3, 1790 twenty-six (26) towns had been surveyed, mapped and numbered.  Brutus was number 4.
