Pultneyville NY was established in 1806. However, Europeans have traveled through this area for well over one hundred years previously. In 1687, the Governor of New France landed 1,600 soldiers of the Companie Franches de la Marine where Pultneyville now stands. From there, they marched south to attack and destroy Iroquois villages and crops. In 1814, Pultneyville was back on the front lines again as a British force landed there and seized provisions for their ships.
In the decades that followed, Pultneyville NY, despite its small size, became an important shipping port and local men served on cargo and whaling vessels that traveled the world. When the railroad came in south of Pultneyville, the economic boom was over and the village slipped into a long, quiet slumber.
Today, it is well-known for its theatre life and as a recreational harbor.
The approaches to Pultneyville NY are clear from all directions. Entrance to the harbor is gained by following two ranges. The first range is a lighted GREEN range with a bearing of 189°T. Follow the marked channel until you pass the pierheard on the breakwater on your starboard. As you follow this range, you will pass two black spar buoys on your port side. At the second black spar, alter course to 259°T and follow the RED range. Once inside the harbor, alter course to 180°T and proceed to the Pultneyville Yacht Club dock. Further south on your port side lies Mill Street Marina.
