People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Stillwater, New York, USA? 

Stillwater, Saratoga, New York, USA
Stillwater is a town in Saratoga County, New York, United States. The town contains a village called Stillwater. The town is at the eastern border of the county, southeast of Saratoga Springs and borders both Rensselaer and Washington counties. Saratoga National Historical Park is located within the town's limits.

In 1709, Peter Schuyler built Fort Ingoldsby in town because of its location on the frontier of the French and Indian Wars. A replica of Schuyler's fort currently serves as the Stillwater Blockhouse Museum.

Settlers began arriving after 1730.

During the American Revolution, residents participated in the war, and part of the Battle of Stillwater was fought in the town so that the town now refers to itself as the turning point of the American Revolution.

Stillwater was established as a town in 1791, when Saratoga County was formed. In 1816, the hamlet of Stillwater incorporated as a village. In 1859, Mechanicville became the town's second village.
