John Lincklaen of the Holland Land Company purchased a rectangular area of 64,000 acres and promoted settlement. In 1793, he founded Cazenovia village on Chittenango Creek, the outlet of the lake, and named it for Theophile Cazenove, the general agent of the company. This became an important stop for drovers and stage coach travellers on the western turnpike. In 1807, Lincklaen built "Lorenzo", a Georgian dwelling, which was followed by other fine residences in the Federal and Greek revival style. Situated on a beautiful lake, four miles in length, Cazenovia attracted summer residences and became a popular resort.
