Here is a history page for Tivoli.

Though it was originally called Red Hook Landing, the current name of Tivoli was for the town of Tivoli, Italy. Pierre de Labigarre built a home built on the present site of the Pynes which he named, "Le Chateau de Tivoli." Later, in 1807, his plan to start the perfect community there fell apart and his property was bought out by Chancellor Robert Livingston at a public auction.

For its first one hundred years, Tivoli was actually two villages. Tivoli along the river and Meyersville (later named Madalin) were two separate communities. It wasn't until June of 1872 that the two villages joined to offically become the present incorporated Village of Tivoli.
