The first settlement in Tottenham is believed to have been in the early 1800s. Tottenham was so named after Alexander Totten, its first postmaster. Although a railway through the town was built in 1877, Tottenham wasn’t incorporated in 1884. The railway drew settlers to the town, increasing its population. This railway remains in Tottenham to this day, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to ride a restored steam train along the countryside.
In 1895, the town was rocked by a large fire which destroyed the business district however the town rallied and rebuilt the area quickly.
