Java Village

Java Town, Wyoming County, NY

The unincorporated hamlet of Java Village was established ca. 1811-1812 by settlers attracted to the potential mill sites along Beaver Meadow Creek. The first mill established was a grist mill, followed soon after by a carding mill, a saw mill, and a tannery. These generated a market for stores, hotels, a blacksmith shop, a boot shop, cabinet shop and an undertaker. A school and post office were also established; the first school was built in 1818. [1]
