     The Town of Alfred, in eastern Allegany County, is the western most watershed of the Susquehanna River and empties into the Chesapeake Bay.  Founded in 1807, Alfred was one of the original towns in Allegany County, and includes the Village of Alfred and the unincorporated hamlets of Alfred Station and Tinkertown. The primary economic activity in the town is education, with both Alfred State College and Alfred University as major employers.  
     The Erie Railroad came through the area in 1851 and established a depot at Alfred Station, allowing for the expansion of local industry. South of Alfred Station on State Route 21 is Tip Top, the highest elevation point on the entire Erie Railroad line between New York City to Chicago.

31.6 square miles

New York State Route 244 passes across the town and terminates at New York State Route 21 near Alfred Station. County roads 10, 11, 12 and 42 pass through the Town of Alfred.

There is a small stream known as Canacadea Creek, that flows throughout the year from south to north. This stream flows to the Canisteo River which is a tributary to the Susquehanna River watershed. The topography is steep hill country as it is part of the Allegheny Plateau, being the northern part of the Appalachian Mountain chain.
