Folklore has it that Piperstown was originally part of a larger district called Montpelier, and that about 600 years ago, a famous Irish Piper named Cornon came to live here. On summer evenings, Cornan would sit and play his pipes on the large granite stone (which is visible in the top right of this picture) for the local dances. Hence The Pipers Stone. Cornan was very popular and he lived in a small village on the lower side of the road. As time went on, people often referred to this village as Piperstown, and Piperstown it still is.
