Historical Sites in Glens Falls

The Feeder Canal - Across from this historic canal is a hydro-electric power-plant on the Hudson River at Glens Falls. The canal was created circa 1820 to feed water into the Champlain Canal. During the early 19th Century the New York State Canal System served a crucial portion of the state's economy. In Glens Falls, lime, marble, lumber, and agricultural products were shipped from the docks at the base of Canal Street.

Fort Amherst Road - Located near this road is the location where Fort Amherst once was. The fort is no longer extant, however portions of the wood foundations were known as late as 1880. The fort constituted a block house marking the half-way point on the road between Fort Ann and Fort William Henry at the head of Lake George. This Fort system, erected by the British, was built to secure the northern territories of the colony from incursions from the French during the French and Indian War. A restored fort house complex is available for viewing in the nearby town of Fort Ann.

Civil War Monument - A limestone obelisk located in the intersection of Glen, South, and Bay streets, only soldiers from the Civil War are listed on the monument. Many battles of the war are listed.

Quaker Meeting House - The Quaker Meeting House, an Italianate edifice on Ridge St. was built in 1875, and originally contained no heating system.

DeLong House - Presently the home of the Glens Falls/Queensbury Historical Association and the Chapman Historical Museum. A Greek Revival and Second Empire edifice on the corner of Glen and Bacon Streets. A Queen Anne style Carriage Barn also sits on the property.

In 1864 there was a massive fire that destroyed most of buildings in the central business district. The oldest building in Glens Falls, located in the downtown area, is one of the few buildings in the city that predates 1864. The stone and brick structure at the bottom of the hill was erected circa 1815 and served as Calvin Robbin's Blacksmith Shop.

Glens Falls Hospital - Founded in the summer of 1897 by a group of twelve local physicians, the Glens Falls Hospital was meant to serve the entire Upper Hudson River Valley. Solomon A. Parks generously donated his home in Glens Falls for the original hospital. The present structure has been extensively modified, enlarged, and modernized several times to better serve the needs of the community, and currently serves as the fast-response trauma center for the region. The hospital is now the area's biggest employer.

Charles R. Wood Theater - This theater opened in 2003 on Glen Street, in the heart of Glens Falls. A former Woolworth store for years, it is now the home of the Adirondack Theatre Festival during the summer months, and introduces culture and theatre into the surrounding community. The theater is named for the late Mr. Wood, who was a successful local entrepreneur and founder of The Great Escape theme park, located between Glens Falls and Lake George.

The Hyde Collection - The center among a triplet of revival type residences constructed for the daughters of Samuel Pruyn, the Hyde is today a world class museum of European, American, and contemporary art. The principal collection is presented in its original domestic context as a private collection.

First Presbyterian Church - The fifth house of worship of this Congregation chartered in 1803 was constructed in 1929. A gothic revival design by Ralph Adams Cram, is among the most outstanding buildings in Glens Falls. Cram was also contracted subsequently by St. Mary's Parish to design the Academy building of the same name on Warren Street.

Crandall Public Library - While the library had existed since 1893, it did not have its own permanent home until 1931, with the completion of the library building in City Park, on property willed to the library by local entrepreneur Henry Crandall. The building was designed by Charles A. Platt; it was renovated and expanded in 1969, and is presently undergoing a major renovation and expansion involving the demolition of the 1969 addition. The library is a part of the Southern Adirondack Library System.
