Hawthorne is an unincorporated hamlet located in the town of Mount Pleasant, New York. Originally known as Hammond's Mills, the name of the village was changed to Unionville after the Revolutionary War. In 1901, Rose Hawthorne Lathrop, daughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne, founded Rosary Hill Home for those suffering from cancer, as well as a Dominican Catholic Order, now known as the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne, and the settlement was renamed in her honor.
