Village of Doylestown

Situated in the heart of Columbia County, Doylestown is a wonderful place. Located on County Highway A, a mile north of State Highway 16, this village offers a combination of rural life with easy access to the conveniences of neighboring villages and cities. It is the largest village in Columbia County in terms of area, but it has the smallest population.

Doylestown has a unique and colorful history. The village was founded by Lemuel Doyle around the time of the Civil War and has been incorporated since 1865. With the railroad as an attraction, the village grew as a settlement area for Irish and German immigrants, with cultural imprints from these people remaining yet today.

The Village has a unique blend of residential areas, agricultural property, and recreational sites. On the west, Doylestown embraces parts of Grassy Lake Wildlife area, a preserve of over 600 acres that teems with wildlife. Outside of the village center, much of the four square miles that make up the incorporated area is wetland or forest, with most of the rest open fields and farmland.

Natural beauty, community focused residents, and a well thought out land-use plan ensure that Doylestown has a bright future. See this map of Doylestown for a view of the whole picture.
