the history of conway

The Town of Conway is located in Northampton County and can be traced back to the early 1700’s.  It was known then as Kirby Township. The name Kirby is derived from Thomas Kirby, Sr. who received a patent for 1200 acres.

Conway was actually settled around 1835 and was known as Martin Crossroads.  A deed in Northampton County Courthouse records the purchase of land by John Martin in 1742.
