The Town of Tonawanda, formed on April 16, 1836, prospered as an agricultural and trading center. The Village of Kenmore
, created on September 18, 1899, and located within the framework of the town, is one of the largest incorporated villages in the state. The City of Tonawanda
parted from the Town of Tonawanda on March 23, 1903.
Thanks to foresighted, systematic planning and responsive government, town facilities have grown to keep pace with community needs.
