It was named after Col. Samuel Ogden. Ogdensburgh became the county seat of St. Lawrence County in 1802 and served until 1828. It was incorporated as a village in 1817. In the same year, Ogdensburg removed the "h" from its spelling. In 1868 it was reincorporated as a city. The city is the site of the Ogdensburg Agreement of 1940, which was signed between United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King.
