Barneveld is a hamlet (and census-designated place) located within the Town of Trenton in Oneida County, New York, United States. The population was 284 at the 2010 census, when it was an incorporated village. The name is derived from the name of the Dutch statesman Johan van Oldenbarnevelt (1547–1619).

The hamlet is in the eastern part of the town on NY 365.


The village was founded in 1793 by Gerrit Boon, an agent of the Holland Land Company.

Mappa Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[2]

In 1903, the post office and railroad station were redesignated as "Barneveld", though the legal name of the village was "Trenton", though it was only in 1975 that the legal name of the village was changed to Barneveld; prior to that, the village was still legally "Village of Trenton".
