Westerlo Town, Albany County, NY

Dormansville was named in honor of Daniel Dorman, who was the first postmaster in 1832. Among the first settlers were W. Tomkins, William Ward and Lewis Husted, who kept a public house. Hiram and Erastus Gibbons were early proprietors of the Dormansville Hotel, and dealers in general merchandise. In 1897 Dormansville contained about 15 dwellings, a Methodist church, a school house, 2 stores, a paint shop, and a wheelwright and blacksmith shop run by W. S. Ward.
