RIGA was formed from Northampton, April 8, 1808. Chili was taken off in 1822. It lies on the west border of the County, near the south-west comer. The surface is level or gently undulating. Black Creek, a dull, sluggish stream, flows east, in a tortuous course, through near the center. The soil is a clayey loam.

Churchville, (p. v.) incorporated in 1867, situated on Black Creek, in the west part of the town, is a station on the N. Y. C. R. R. and contains four churches, viz., Congregational, Methodist, Baptist and Universalist; two hotels, a manufactory of agricultural implements, a grist mill, a saw mill, several stores and shops, and about 500 inhabitants.

Riga Center (Riga p. o.) is situated near the center and contains a church, an academy, and about 25 dwellings.

The first settlement was commenced in 1806, under the auspices of James Wadsworth. Many of the early settlers were from Berkshire Co., Mass. Elihu Church settled on lot 94, in 1806; Amasa Frost on lot 82, where his descendants still reside, and Wm. Parker the same year. Nehemiah Frost, Richard and Samuel Church moved in the same year. Richard Church was the father of Elihu and Samuel Church; he settled on lot 53, and Samuel Church on lot 84; Samuel Baldwin settled on lot 81, and Henry Brewster on lot 90. The last two came on in 1806, but did not move their famiies until the next year. Among the other early settlers were Samuel Shepard, Ezekiel Barnes, James Knowles, Thomas Bingham, Joseph Tucker, Enos Morse, George Richmond, Joseph Emerson, and Eber and Chester Orcutt. Nehemiah Frost settled on lot 114, and Samuel Shepard on lot 113.

The first birth in the town was that of a daughter of Samuel Church; the first male child born was Hiram Shepard, son of Samuel Shepard, in 1806. The first marriage was that of Joseph Sibley and Clarissa Church, daughter of Richard Church. The first death was that of Richard Church, in 1807. Samuel Church built the first saw mill, in 1808, and the first grist mill, in 1811, at Churchille. The first school was taught by Thomas Gay. Joseph Thompson opened the first inn, and Thompson and Tuttle the first store, in 1808.

Previous to the construction of the Erie Canal the means of transportation were so limited that only a very low price was realized for the products of the soil. Mr. Brewster in one year raised 3,000 bushels of wheat; the price was very low and he tried the experiment of transporting it to an eastern market. For this purpose he had enough ground to make seventy barrels of flour. with four sleds, to which were attached six yoke of oxen and four horses, he carried this to Northampton, Mass., where he sold it for six dollars per barrel. The oxen were also sold at a profit and the enterprise proved successful. In 1808 wheat sold in Geneva for 12½ cents a bushel. One man purchased a barrel of whisky, paying for it six bushels of wheat for a gallon.

Among the mishaps of pioneer life the following is related: Elihu and Samuel Church, Amasa Frost, Samuel Shepard and their wives, with an ox sled, started on a visit to Jehiel Barnes. As they were ascending the bank, after crossing Black Creek, the rear end board came out, letting them into the water. The nearest house was two miles distant and thither they were compelled to go before any change of clothing or fire could be procured.

The first church (Congregational) was organized in the fall of 1809. Rev. Allen Hollister was the first pastor. He was ordained and installed by an ecclesiastical council two or three years after the organization of the Church, and continued pastor until sickness prevented his performing its duties.

The population of the town in 1865 was 2,141; its area is 21,009 acres.

There are twelve school districts, employing thirteen teachers. The number of the school population is 767; the number attending school, 616; the average attendance, 316, and the amount expended for school purposes during the year ending September 30, 1868, was $4,138.65.
