Village of Jordan Clerk Archival Records Listing

Jordan was incorporated on May 2, 1835. It has an approximate area of 1.04 square miles. It was an Erie Canal village also a former center of trade and manufacturing- situated in the Northwest section of the Town of Elbridge. The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 gave a stimulus to the village of Jordan, where a saw mill had been built in 1800, the "White" mill in 1825, and the 'Red" mill in 1824. The next year came a post office, with Seneca Hale as postmaster. In 1836 Jordan had three grist mills, three saw mills, a sash factory, distillery, clothing works, tannery, five taverns, seven general stores, two drug stores, five groceries.
