McEwensville


MCEWENSVILLE - Founded 1790. Formerly named "Pine Grove". Renamed for Alex. McEwen, which I assume is short for Alexander McEwen. The borough was not named for Scottish folk singer Alexander McEwen, but rather for Captain Alexander McEwen, a veteran of the War of 1812 who was also a merchant, canal contractor and the first postmaster of the town that was later renamed in his honor.
