“While the origins of the name Milan remains a mystery, the names of its neighborhoods are somewhat easier to discover, although they don’t always remain constant. Case in point: prior to September 12, 1818 the residents of this neighborhood lived in “West Northeast”. From 1818 to about 1882 they lived in Milanville and in 1969 they live at Case’s Corners. Case is derived from Rensselaer Case an enterprising merchant who had a general store from 1867 to at least 1882. He was not the only business man here as there was also a blacksmith shop, the post office and a sawmill. The Newsletter would be interested in hearing from anyone who has further information about the history of Case’s Corners.”
