The history of Watkins Glen

The village was incorporated in 1842 as Salubria, then "Jefferson", but was renamed Watkins after Dr. Samuel Watkins, for his contributions to the community. The current name Watkins Glen was adopted in 1926. The first settlement of European peoples in the area began circa 1800. Watkins Glen was the northern terminus of the Chemung Canal, connecting Seneca Lake to the Chemung River. Catherine Creek, flowing into the lake through the village, was used to help create the canal.
