Onion town is a small section of dover plains.
I've been told it was originally called young man's town as it was a depression area work camp. Unemployed men found work there as part of the new deal.
Name morphed to onion town somewhere down the line.
Local kids from putnam and dutchess routinely harass those living there. Rumors spread of back country hill billies and inbreds as kids told there tall tales.
I've never been there, but hunted the surrounding land for years,never had any issues with the locals
