Stillwater is a town in Saratoga County, New York, United States. The population was 7,522 at the 2000 census. 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..
As of the census of 2010, there were 7522 people, 98.21% of whom were white. The median income for a household in the town was $47,579, per capita income for the town was $37,428.
The area was occupied by Iroquois and Mohican natives when the colonial period began.In 1709, Peter Schuyler built Fort Ingoldsby in town because of its location on the frontier of the French and Indian Wars. Settlers began arriving after 1730.
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. In 1824, there were more sheep than people, and that continued 498 dwellings, 13 district schools and 1246 working oxen and cattle. In addition to all the mills and industries, farming was very important. In 1860, local farms produced 101,935 pounds of butter and 13,090 pounds of cheese, for example.
However, progress caught up with Stillwater and then bypassed it. The canal was overtaken by the railroads; there were devastating mill fires; stores dwindled or closed. Stillwater has become a “bedroom community”, with people commuting to work in the nearby Capital District. There is now a building boom, as the charm of the village, with its stately Victorian homes; and its situation by the river and rolling hills, is discovered.
