Welcome to Neversink
The Town of Neversink came into formal existence by an act of the Ulster County Legislature dated March 16, 1798. It’s first supervisor, Henry Reynolds, was appointed by that same legislature. Prior to that time, early Neversink or “Neversink Country” as it was sometimes known was part of the Town of Rochester, Ulster County. It was 1809 when Neversink became part of the newly created Sullivan County. In 1809 Neversink included part of Denning, Fremont, Callicoon, Liberty, Fallsburg and all of Rockland townships. In a short period of time, other legislative acts changed property lines and the present boundaries of the Town of Neversink were established. Historical research is often made difficult because the Town of Neversink moved from one county to another and the boundaries kept changing. Official records may be found in Ulster County until 1814. Only then do records show up in Sullivan County.
Note from the Town of Neversink Park Officer:
Dogs are welcome at all Town of Neversink Parks. The Town is asking owners who use the parks with their dogs to please clean up after them. This includes inside and outside of the fences. Dog droppings have been found at the Route 42 Community Park and the Grahamsville Fairgrounds. Please be considerate of others and clean up after your pet. Dog waste stations are available at both locations for your convenience. The Town does not want to make the difficult decision of banning dogs from any areas of our parks.
The Town is also asking that all dogs be kept on leash when other residents with or without a dog are in the same area. Dogs who are off leash may charge at others without warning. The fenced fields have openings that dogs can fit through, for the safety of others please keep your dog on a leash.
Thank you for your help in keeping our Town Parks clean and safe for everyone.
