In the 1650s, Barent Cornelis Volge operated a sawmill on the Sawyer’s Kill, supplying lumber for the manor of Rensselaerswick. He had secured a title from the Esopus Sachem to this lands sometime before 1663. Volge likely left the area at the outbreak of the first Esopus War in 1658. The “footpath to Albany” was not laid out until 1670. In April 1677 Governor Edmund Andros purchased land from the Esopus Indian Kaelcop, chief of the Amorgarickakan tribe for the price of a piece of cloth, a blanket, some coarse fiber, a loaf of bread, and a shirt. The Mynderse House was built by John Persen, formerly of Kingston, an early mill owner, around 1685.
In 1710, during the Palatine immigration, over 3,000 Palatine Germans were sent here by the English Crown to manufacture naval stores, tar, and turpentine. In October 1710, 300 families who had immigrated to England from the Palatine region of Germany established camps on the east and west side of the Hudson. The camp on the west side of the river became known as West Camp in the Town of Saugerties. The villages at West Camp were called Elizabethtown, Georgetown, and Newtown. Sawmills were established on the Esopus Creek. In 1998 a monument commemorating their arrival was erected on the lawn of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in West Camp.

The village was incorporated in 1831 as “Ulster,” but it changed its name to “Saugerties” in 1855. In 1825, a man by the name of Henry Barclay purchased land known as Esopus Creek. After Barclay bought Esopus Creek he soon began to build a dam and a rock cutting project. Between 1826 -1827, Barclay built Ulster Iron Works and a paper mill, thus beginning what became the largest water-powered industry in the world. It was sold in 1851 to the Sheffield Company and resold in 1903 to the Cantine Company which closed the mill in 1975.
