The village was originally called "Sauers" after the local Native American tribe. It was renamed in 1801 to Suffern, after John Suffern, a landowner and native of New Jersey who settled there in 1770. The village became incorporated on April 6, 1867 as part of Ramapo town and county until it broke away from Ramapo to become its own town/village on March 12th 1895 with 1 square mile (2.6 km²) taken from the Town of Haverstraw at that time due to population growth over 20 years prior when it had only 3 square miles (7 km²). In 2006, CNNMoney ranked Suffern #10 on its list of the 100 Best Places To Live in America; this followed being ranked #12 for 2005 by Money magazine's list. In 2007 Newsweek listed Suffern as one of "America's Top 25 Towns".
