Our History
The Town of Hamlin was created as the "Town of Union," but was renamed in 1861 as the Town of Hamlin in honor of Lincoln's first Vice President Hannibal Hamlin. Hamlin was initially a part of the town of Northampton. The town of Murray split from Northampton in 1807, and split again into Union and Clarkson on December 14, 1852. The North Star School District No. 11 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

The situation revolving around the spread of the Covid-19 virus has escalated rapidly. The Governor has issued several executive orders to attempt to slow the spread of the virus and to protect the public and public workers. I am closing the Town Hall to the public effective tomorrow, 18 Mar 2020 until 15 April 2020 which is the expiration of the order. Access will be restricted to essential employees and they will be here during regular business hours. The public is directed to utilize phone calls and mail to conduct business. All non essential meetings, workshops and events are cancelled until that time. Board meetings will still be conducted, the building will be closed to the public, meetings will be recorded and put on the website and all efforts to comply with the relaxation of the Open Meetings Law are being taken. Unless absolutely necessary Public Hearings will not be scheduled during that time. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
