Cairo is a town in the center of Greene County, bordered on the east by the Towns of Athens and Catskill to the south by the Town of Hunter to the west by the Towns of Jewett and Windham and to the north by the Towns of Durham and Greenville.

According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 60.1 square miles and a population of 6,355, 97% white. The median income for a household in the town was $35,995. The per capita income for the town was $19,407.

The Town of Cairo, which formed from Catskill, Coxsackie and Freehold or Durham, March 26, 1803, lies at the foot of the Catskills, the mountains forming the west boundary. Patents had been issued for all of the lands of this town before the Revolution, but it is doubtful whether any of these had been occupied by actual settlers before James Barker, who came in 1765.

With the end migration to this district, principally by those who were after hemlock bark for tanneries. Curiously out of the destruction of so many trees for their bark, grew a new industry, which has left its name forever on one of the streams of the neighborhood shingle making. (Shinglekill) The only sizable settlement in the town is the village of Cairo. Cairo has a history of drawing visitors going back to the 1800’s.

Cairo was one of the first towns in the area to develop ski slopes and trails and tourism has been its largest “industry” since the 1800’s. From 1800 the Susquehannah Turnpike, a private toll road, ran through the town. The Cairo Railroad represented the incursion by the young Catskill Mountain Railroad into the freight business when the branch was chartered on April 10, 1884. The directors of the CMRR saw the Cairo extension as a means of tapping business in bluestone, hay and fruit. Shale rock would represent a major portion of the CMRR’s freight revenue until the shale brick plant closed in 1914.

Improved transportation modes were reducing travel time between the New York City area and the Catskills.  Tourism increased as a result.  The area, already made famous by artists, authors, and poets would begin to see a seasonal boom to supplement its agricultural base.  Many hotels and boarding or “rooming houses” were either established or expanded.

 Cairo NY showed this pattern continued until the early 20th century, which marked the gradual decline of horse-drawn transportation and its replacement, by the automobile.  The “horseless carriage” would forever change the way Americans lived and tourist destinations like Cairo would benefit from this newfound mobility.  But this proved fatal to the local railroad industry and the Cairo Railroad would close after the 1918 summer season.  Iron from the railway was used for the efforts of America’s First World War.  Visitors now arrived in individual autos, spawning the growth of filling stations and roadside souvenir stands.
