It is believed that the residents of Town Line, NY met at the schoolhouse near this marker following the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861 and voted 80-45 to secede from the Union. The story is undocumented and their reasons are unknown.

With encouragement from President Harry S. Truman, Town Line residents gathered again in January 1946 at the schoolhouse, which had become a blacksmith shop, and voted 90-23 to officially return to the Union.
