In the 17th century, Melville was known as Samuel Ketcham’s Valley, named after one of the earlier natives residing in the area. It is believed that it was later called Sweet Hollow due to the large population of honey bees and wild honey found in the hollow of trees in the area. In 1854, school records indicate that the name changed to Melville, likely derived from the Latin word “Mel”, which means “honey.”
