A former hamlet named Fergus Crossroads became Yorkville, the county seat of York County, in 1785. By 1823 York had 80 homes, 8 stores, 5 taverns, 2 academies, a post office and a printing office. It was officially incorporated in 1841. By 1861 the population approached 1,500 and had the second-highest per-capita income in the state. [1]
