About Newcomb, NY

Newcomb is a town in Essex County, New York, United States. The population was 436 at the 2010 census. The town lies in an area claimed prehistorically by both Iroquois and Algonquian tribes. The town was settled around 1816. Most of the early industry was devoted to harvesting lumber until the discovery of large iron ore deposits. The Town of Newcomb was established in 1828 from parts of the Towns of Minerva and Moriah. It includes the Hamlet of Newcomb, but does not contain a village. By the end of the 19th Century, the town was becoming famous as a sportsman's paradise. Theodore Roosevelt was informed of the impending death of President William McKinley in September 1901 while hunting and hiking in the town. The Mount Adams Fire Observation Station, located atop Mount Adams, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
