  •  Gloversville's History and Culture   In 1852, Gloversville was a small village called Stump City. When it became an incorporated village in 1853, the name was changed to Gloversville due to the glove trade being established. In that year, the population was 1,318. Gloversville was  initially made up of three settlements, the Settlement, later referred to as the Mills Settlement, north of the city was the Kingsboro settlement the third was called the Settlement on the Hill. These settlements grew inward to the four corners  which became the hub of the city.

    With the coming of the FJ&G railroad in 1870, Gloversville's glove industry boomed, and it became known as the glove Capitol of the World, later the industry adopted the slogan "Gloversville Gloves America", and later  the word  world was substituted.

    Many prominent citizens have called Gloversville home. Among them are Lucius Littauer, who became a Congressman, and through his generosity had the city's first hospital built. A bronze statue of Littauer stands today on the grounds of the  former high school at the corner of N. Main Street and Prospect Avenue.
