So it was that Capt. Reuben Perkins, Revolutionary War soldier and founder of Canastota, came jogging along by stagecoach down the Seneca Trail from Litchfield, Conn., in the year of 1807.
The Seneca Trail, soon to be known as Seneca Turnpike and later Route 5, followed the Indian trails and waterways, enabling the early settlers to travel west on horseback and oxcart and later by stagecoach. Capt. Perkins purchased 329.5 acres from the Oneida Indians in 1810. Two of these were the residences of Capt. Perkins and his son-in-law, Thomas Menzie. The Canastota section of the Erie Canal was laid through at this time and Capt. Perkins was made superintendent of the operation. The first school in vicinity had been a log cabin on Main Street and the second near the cabin of Capt. Reuben Perkins.
