History < -  > Genealogy 

Walden lies in the western part of Caledonia county. Villages and hamlets include: Walden, North Walden, South Walden, The Four Corners and Walden Heights.

It is believed that the first non-native inhabitants of Walden were a small garrison under command of a man named Walden, who was left in charge of the block-house built by General HAZEN, through the winter of 1779-80, and it is said that from him the town derived its name. (Hamilton Child, p. 357).
