Silas Meech came from Vermont in 1807 and became the first settler in what is now the Town of Arcade. He was soon followed by several other families, and in 1818 the Town of China was created out of the Town of Sheldon. The Town of China was re-named Arcade in 1866, and by 1871 the settlement at the juncture of Cattaraugus and Clear creeks had grown enough to be incorporated as a village.  The town was named "China" after a popular hymn tune of the period. The early settlers were predominantly from western New England and eastern New York. Today the village includes over 2,000 people while the entire town is over 4,000.
