Katonah New York Homes For Sale
Founded with the name Whitlockville, and later renamed for Chief Katonah, an American Indian from whom the land of Bedford was purchased by a group of English colonists, the town changed its name to Katonah and moved to the present site in 1897 when the former site (Old Katonah) was flooded by the construction of the Cross River Reservoir. More than 50 buildings were moved from the old site to the ""New Katonah"", rolled on logs pulled by horses.
