Somers Town Court

The Town of Somers is a suburb of New York City and White Plains occupying 32 square miles in northeastern Westchester County. It has a population of 18,000. The Town is referred to as the "cradle of the American circus" because in the early 1800’s Hachaliah Bailey of Somers toured the northeast with an African elephant originally intended to do farm work. But the elephant made too much of a commotion for that. Bailey met with so much success on tour that others imitated him. A short time later, Bailey’s animal attractions and the then existing style of circus merged, creating the modern circus. Both IBM and Pepsi have large offices in Somers.
