Somers is a town located in northeastern Westchester County, New York, United States. The nearby Metro-North Commuter Railroad provides service to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan with an average commute time of slightly over an hour from stations at Purdys, Goldens Bridge, and Katonah. Somers was originally inhabited by Kitchawanks, part of the Mohegan tribe, who called the land Amapaugh, meaning fresh water fish. This land was located in the eastern segment of an 83,000-acre (340 Square kilometer) tract that King William III of England granted to Stephanus Van Cortlandt of New York City in 1697.
