The town was permanently settled around 1787 after an abandoned effort in 1786. Norway was formed in 1792 immediately after the creation of HerkimerCounty. Norway was originally a very large town, and it was subsequently broken up, directly or indirectly, into about thirty-six new towns in several counties. In HerkimerCounty, the Towns of Fairfield (1796), Russia (1806), Ohio (1823), Wilmurt (now defunct), and Webb (1836) were made by dividing Norway. Part of Newport was taken from Norway in 1806. The creation of OneidaCounty, LewisCounty, ClintonCounty, HamiltonCounty, and St. Lawrence County from HerkimerCounty accounts for the remaining towns derived from Norway. In 1825, the town’s population was 1,168.
