Barton (T)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. It is called New York State when there is need to distinguish it from New York City. Because a significant majority of the population is concentrated in the southern portion around New York City, the state is often regionalized into Upstate and Downstate. New York is the home of Ellis Island, where many immigrants in the early 20th century arrived in the United States.
The Sullivan Expedition of 1779 passed through this region. The first settlers arrived around 1791. The town of Barton was established in 1824. The region was already settled in 1796 when John Shepard bought 4 square kilometers by the current location of Waverly. The source of the town's name is uncertain. Barton is a town in Tioga County, New York, USA. The population was 9,066 at the 2000 census. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 154.7 square kilometers.
Like some of its sister municipalities and towns, Barton is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in New York.
