Chosen for the beauty and utility of the graceful French Creek, the area now known as Saegertown was first settled by brothers Arthur and Patrick McGill in 1792. Nine years later, Holland Land Company agent Rodger Alden bought land from the McGills and built a mill along the creek, starting a community that thrives to this day. Around Saegertown chronicles how Saegertown and its neighboringvillages and rural areas transformed from a small agricultural community into an area full of industry and tourism attracting the wealthy and influential to its elegant inns and healing mineral springs.
