During the revolutionary war the Ancram iron works was a source of armaments for both the Continental army and the British.   It was in Ancram that iron was made for the cannon balls for the Continental artillery and the links for the great chain that was stretched across the Hudson River between Anthony’s Nose and Fort Montgomery, to keep the British fleet from sailing up the Hudson to attack West Point.  The iron works became a paper mill in 1854 and still operates as a paper mill today.  It is the longest continuously operating mill in New York State and one of the largest employers in Columbia County.

“Modern” dairy farming came to Ancram in 1875 when the railroad arrived in Ancram, providing access to the New York market for Ancram farmers as well.  Stimulated by the ability to ship milk by rail to New York, more farmers focused on dairy farming and created the large dairy herds which have characterized farming in Ancram since the railroads arrived in the mid-1870’s.

Copake was part of the 1686 Taconic Grant to Robert Livingston for about 400 acres (1.6 km2) of good land and 2,200 acres (8.9 km2) of woodland. After it was purchased from the Indians it turned out to be 160,000 acres (650 km2), and he established the English-style Livingston Manor. The manor extended well into what is now Massachusetts.
