The town of Hamilton (renamed Manhattan in 1890) was settled by barley growers from Netherlands in the 1800s, financed by a group of New York investors who operated the Manhattan Malting Company. It became a rural community center as the area expanded into potatoes, dairy and wheat farms, and cattle ranches. (Source: Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and townofmanhattan.com)
