News: Schuyler Falls Record


The first citizen of Schuyler Falls to die in the Revolutionary War was Joseph Quickly, a farmer who marched 120 miles in order to fight in the Battle of Saratoga in 1777.

Both of Joseph's sons also died fighting the British. Wife Elizabeth raised their surviving seven daughters alone - one of whom, Martha, was the great-great-great grandmother of current Mayor Daniel Burroughs.


Schuyler Falls is located in the upper Hudson Valley in Columbia County, New York, approximately 120 miles north of Manhattan and 110 miles south of Albany. Traveling west, visitors will find the lush Catskill Mountains; to the east lies the beautiful Hudson River.

As you see above, Schuyler Falls has its own remarkable scenery: pictured clockwise - Hamilton Park Basin in autumn; a distant view of Mount Monroe from a snow-frosted Mohawk Woods; the Schuyler River; the business district near City Hall; the hikers' trail, also in Mohawk Woods; and, at the center, one of several waterfalls that give our city its name.
