Deposit location: near the Pennsylvania border in southern New York, east of Binghamton
The village of Deposit, originally called "Cookhouse", an attempt to mimic the local Native American dialect name of Koo-Koos, sits squarely astride the Fort Stanwick Treaty Line, the line west of which the early settlers agreed with the local natives not to settle. That line now neatly separates the old Deposit Free Academy, now the elementary school, and the Presbyterian church, and serves as the boundary between Broome and Delaware Counties. Many houses in the village are bisected by the county line, making tax assessments interesting. The village once had a thriving logging industry, supported by miles-long log rafts on the West Branch of the Delaware River, which flows through the Delaware County side of the town.
