Some of the town was lost to form the Town of Ashland in 1848.

Prattsville was later named after Zadock Pratt, a congressman and prominent citizen.   The 1830 population of the town was 830.  Pratt built a tannery larger than any other in the world at the time, helping it become a major town in Upstate New York. When Pratt built his tannery, it created a vast number of jobs and the population grew to 1989 by 1850.   However, by 1845 all of the Hemlock bark had been extracted from the forests for 10 miles around, and Pratt was forced to close the tannery.

The jobs that were lost could not be replaced, and the town’s population dwindled to 1,314 by 1875.  The Old Episcopal Manse was added to the Places National Register of Historic in 2000.

On August, 28. 2011, Hurricane Irene caused record flooding in the town by the Schoharie Creek, causing major damage and destroying large areas of the town.   It received widespread national news coverage because the town had nearly been washed away.
