Trumansburg's rich history dates back well over 200 years. Largely Iroquois and Algonquin Indian land prior to the late 1700's, the area was awarded to Abner Treman, a captain in the Revolutionary War, for his distinguished service in various campaigns in and around New York State. He and his family began to settle the area in 1792. The Village of Trumansburg was officially incorporated in 1872.
Trumansburg is a Village incorporated under Article 2 of New York State Village Law. It is governed by a Board consisting of a Mayor and four Trustees.
In addition, a dedicated staff of full and part-time employees see to the all-important, day to day operations of the Village.
