History[edit]

Assumption was originally named St. Mary's Corners because it was the location of St. Mary's Catholic Church. In 1840, the area was called both Caraghar's Corners and Caraghar, after an early Irish settler of the area named Patrick Caraghar. By 1942, the village assumed its current name.[2]
