The Town of Mentz is located in Central Cayuga County, New York. The town was formed in 1802 as the "Town of Jefferson" from the town of Aurelius while still part of Onondaga County. In 1808, it assumed its current name.
The first permanent settlers arrived in 1810, although others had attempted to settle the area previously.
In 1837, the community of Port Byron set itself apart from Mentz by incorporating as a village.
There are a number of people who can trace their roots back to Port Byron or who settled here for a while. Before he was a leader of the Mormon faith, Brigham Young lived here in the early 1830s. He was a painter and builder. One of the early buildings he lived in still exists on Pine Street. Henry Wells of "Wells Fargo" fame also lived here in the early 1830s. We can trace Isaac Singer of sewing machine fame here in 1837. Opera singer Richard Bonelli was born here as Jacob Bunn.
