Prattsville NY Real Estate includes the Town of Prattsville which is in the northern part of Greene County, bordered on the north by Schoharie County to the east by the Town of Ashland to the south by the Town of Lexington and to the west by the County of Delaware.

According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 19.7 sq mi square miles and a population of 665, 99% white.   The median income for a household in the town was $30,655.   The per capita income for the town was $14,962.

The town was first settled around 1763, and the region was then called “Schoharie Kill.”   An attempt during the American Revolution by the British and their Tory allies to drive the settlers out was thwarted when they were defeated by the settlers.   Prattsville was established in 1824 from the Town of Windham. Some of the town was lost to form the Town of Ashland in 1848.

Prattsville was later named after Zadock Pratt, a congressman and prominent citizen.   The 1830 population of the town was 830.  Pratt built a tannery larger than any other in the world at the time, helping it become a major town in Upstate New York. When Pratt built his tannery, it created a vast number of jobs and the population grew to 1989 by 1850.   However, by 1845 all of the Hemlock bark had been extracted from the forests for 10 miles around, and Pratt was forced to close the tannery.

The jobs that were lost could not be replaced, and the town’s population dwindled to 1,314 by 1875.  The Old Episcopal Manse was added to the Places National Register of Historic in 2000.

On August, 28. 2011, Hurricane Irene caused record flooding in the town by the Schoharie Creek, causing major damage and destroying large areas of the town.   It received widespread national news coverage because the town had nearly been washed away.
