The town was founded by Pliny Moore. When the army was in retreat from Canada early in 1776 his division forded the Big Chazy River. He loved the area so much he went back after the war, and with 17 friends, he obtained a grant of 11,600 acres of land on the west shore of the Big Chazy River. In March of 1785, together with 2 friends, located and surveyed the tract which was known as Moorefield Grant. In 1787 Lieut. Moore took a party of friends, relatives, and tradespeople, cleared the area, and settled the village of Champlain. He at once built a dam above the settlement and erected the first saw, grist, carding, and fulling mills in the area. On the 1st of each month he was visited by a corporal and file of men sent from the Point-au-Fer telling him his grant from NY State would not be recognized and warning him "off the soil." He paid no attention and they eventually gave up possession of the Post in 1796. He put up a log dwelling, brought his young wife in, then built a stately mansion on the hill above. He was the first justice of the peace in 1788, and the following year was chosen County Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. For 17 years he was the first judge on the bench. He was a Federalist, and was the first Postmaster in Champlain and the first merchant. In 1811 he brought in the first piano or harpsichord and the ladies of his family were regarded as the most fortunate of the land. He was prominent in building a large brick school house used also for worship by all sects. In 1816 he was chairman of a meeting called to organize "the Clinton County Bible Society" and was its first president. He often led worship on the "Lord's Day" and never neglected family worship. He owned 3 slaves whom he emancipated early. One, Phillis, remained in the family and received an annuity, by will, from the Judge upon his death. He left an estate consisting of 5,000 acres and other valuable pieces of property. He willed the old burying ground to the village, an acre of ground to the Congregational Church, and $1,0 00 to aid in its construction.
