This village was named after Madam Deferiet (from France). Most of the first residents however, were immigrants directly from Italy and Poland. The land and village were developed by a group of men from Watertown, New York who designed a village centered around a paper mill. This was the very first St. Regis Paper Mill, which was so successful that the company had locations all over the world.
The village is a man-made island, constructed with a canal connecting from and to the Black river. The canal was constructed by a dam which would direct water to the canal and paper mill which has a second dam with hydro electric (water powered) generators that turned the rushing water into electricity. At the start-up of construction, two apartment buildings were built at separate ends of the village. One was inhabited by Italian families and the other primarily Polish. This village has a very unique history and is a very special place.
