Settlement began before 1700 while the region was part of Livingston Manor. The town was formed from the Town of Livingston in 1803 as the “Town of Granger” which originally included the Town of Copake.
Throughout the 1900’s multiple dairy farms and orchards dotted the landscape, many of which were self-sufficient. With the construction of the Taconic State Parkway, which reached route 82 in 1957 more commerce came to the area, along with an influx of vacationers to Lake Taghkanic State Park. Today this town, once a remote mountainous wilderness, is an easy 2 hour trip from New York City, and a simple commute to Albany. The majority of residences are now second homes. The name Taghkanic is famous as a result of skillfully crafted baskets made by locals in former years.
