History of Tompkinsville
Tompkinsville began as a water supply for European colonial settlers, known colloquially as the "Watering Place". Year later, a settlement was formerly established and named after its founder, Daniel D. Tompkins, the governor of New York from 1807 to 1817. Tompkins built a dock at the foot of what is now known as Victory Boulevard and began offering steam ferry service to Manhattan. In 1817, Tompkins became the sixth Vice President of the United States, alongside President James Monroe.
