Gallatin is one of the southernmost towns in Columbia County, once part of Livingston Manor, the 160,000 acre manor of the Livingston family. Geographically, Gallatin is hilly, “a poor upland,” and never was good farming country, a factor which has shaped its history. The highest point in the Town is Mattashuck Hill,also known as Signal Rock, (elevation 1104 feet) south of Lake Taghkanic. The area is now known as Green Hill, because of the many evergreen trees in the area. Many years ago the United States Geological Survey erected a flagpole to mark the site, but it was blown down by a storm in 1918, according to local legend. Signal Rock is the name given this high point, because it was used by the Indians for fires and smoke signals that could be seen for many miles.

Gallatin NY was centered in Gallatinville the largest settlement in the early town, with a railroad station, a hotel, stores, a grist mill, a plaster mill, two blacksmith shops, a post office and about a dozen houses in the 19th century. The roads through Gallatin were important major thoroughfares even inthe earliest days, meeting the needs of moving livestock, agricultural products and even bar iron and cast iron goods by oxcart from eastern New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts to theHudson River. The Salisbury Turnpike (which went through Suydam) was a vital road link. Another important road was the Nobletown Turnpike, which led to Hillsdale and Great Barrington to the east and north. Rail service came after the Civil War, in 1874, with the Rhinebeck and Connecticut Railroad. The line ran from Rhinecliff on the Hudson to Boston Corners, with stops at Copake, Ancram, Gallatinville, Silvernails, Jackson Corners, and Elizaville.
