Copake was part of the 1686 Taconic Grant to Robert Livingston for about 400 acres (1.6 km2) of good land and 2,200 acres (8.9 km2) of woodland. After it was purchased from the Indians it turned out to be 160,000 acres (650 km2), and he established the English-style Livingston Manor. The manor extended well into what is now Massachusetts.
The Town of Copake was established in 1824 and derives its name from the Indian name for the prominent lake in the Town. The Copake Iron Works, also known as Copake Station, was the site of iron mining throughout the latter part of the 19th century. The New York and Harlem Railroad came through in 1852.
