Sidney history:

Though inhabited by Native Americans for hundreds of years, the area was first known as Johnston Settlement or Sidney Plains. Reverend William Johnston arrived in the early 1770's and built a home here. During the Revolutionary War, Johnston and the other settlers left the area temporarily for protection. They returned in 1778 and continued to live in the area. Originally the town was part of Otsego County was Delaware County was created in 1796. Sidney was named for Sir Sidney Smith, a British admiral

The railroad came through in 1866, bringing with it more business and trade. Sidney quickly became a railroad hub. Hard times came in the early 1900's due to fires, bad business and simple bad luck. Most of the businesses in town closed and left at this time. In recent years, more business has moved to Sidney. The area boomed during World War II with defense work at the Scientific Magneto Division of Bendix Aviation
