Tannersville is a village in Greene County, New York, United States. The village was founded around lumber mills and tanneries. It was incorporated in 1895
Tannersville's tanning business collapsed in the mid-19th century. It was gradually replaced by the summer resort trade, which reached its peak in 1882 when the railroad came to Tannersville. However, the rise of the automobile in the early 20th century led to a steady economic decline, as travelers were no longer rooted to one spot for an entire summer.
