The Village of Barneveld built this website through a cooperative grant obtained by the Northern Oneida County Council of Governments. Please stop by again.
Barneveld is a small, but beautiful and historic village located just off State Rt. 12, about 10 miles north of Utica NY, the gateway to the Adirondack Mountains. The history of the village dates back to its settlement in 1793. Two creeks join in the village, the Steuben Creek and the Cincinnati Creek, forming a picturesque setting. Since 1900 only about a dozen new homes have been constructed, giving the village a distinct well-settled and richly historic atmosphere.
The village water lines will be flushed and hydrants tested for pressure on Sunday, August 9, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Please plan your water use accordingly as water may become discolored. Run your cold faucet until it runs clear.
Pursuant to Village Law, the Treasurer's Report of the Village of Barneveld for the fiscal year June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015 is on file at the office of the Village Clerk, where it is available for inspection by all interested persons.

The recipient is chosen from member water systems throughout New York State. The award was presented to Barneveld for continued excellence in providing safe drinking water through superior operations and progressive management.
A water-tasting contest was held July 24 at the Boonville Oneida County Fair. Barneveld's water came in first place with the most votes. The next day Barneveld, representing Oneida County, submitted another sample for the regional contest held in Syracuse. The regional area includes all of central New York from Watertown to Binghamton. Barneveld came in second and will now be entered in the state contest held at the State Fair this month. For more details see our July newsletter.
The village website recently won the 2011 Digital Towpath Innovation Award for its historical information containing a written history of the village and several early photographs and postcards. Along with early photographs of village buildings visitors can also view how certain buildings look now. Various maps dating back to 1793 are also included. The website was recognized as being a historic resource for genealogists, historians or others interested in the history of our village. The Webmaster, Village Clerk Anita Adam, welcomes any additional photographs or other items of historic interest that could be included on the website. Items do not have to be donated to the village. Paper documents can be scanned and returned to the owner.
