Barryville is a hamlet in Highland, Sullivan County, New York. Previously known as "The RIver," the hamlet was renamed for William T. Barry, postmaster general under President Andrew Jackson.HistoryBarryville is a hamlet in the Town of Highland. The Town of Highland was created by an act of the County Board of Supervisors on December 17, 1853. The Town of Lumberland was subdivided into the present day Towns of Lumberland, Highland and Tusten because the traveling distance for town meetings was too great. The Town takes its name from highland ridges above the Delaware River. It was first inhabited by the Lenape and the trappers of Minisink and Mamakating. Colonial period hunters, trappers and lumbermen were drawn to Highland because of its streams and lakes, dense hardwood and conifer forests and wild game.On July 22, 1779, the Upper Delaware's only major Revolutionary War battle was fought on the plateau above Minisink Ford. The battle was fought between the colonial militia of Goshen who suffered a devastating defeat against a group of Indians and Tories commanded by Mohawk Chieftain Joseph Brant. Highland was settled sometime after the War towards the turn of the century. The former hamlet of Lumberland Post Office, now Eldred, was established by 1814.Delaware and Hudson Canal on the Delaware River in Barryville, NY. Provisions for educating the children of the inhabitants were made shortly after the first settlement in the Town. The first store was opened in 1828 and the first tavern in 1830. Barryville developed with the construction of the Delaware and Hudson Canal (D&H Canal) in 1828. A blacksmith shop, a gristmill and a broomhandle factory were established in Barryville shortly thereafter. Later a glass factory opened which made molded glass. The Town grew with the canal, providing a large maintenance area and supply depot for its canalers. Between 1827 and 1898 the D&H Canal carried coal from the Moosic Mountains of Pennsylvania to the coal markets of New York City.
