More About The History of Saratoga County NY Real Estate
When counties were established in the Province of New York in 1683, the present Saratoga County was part of Albany County. This was an enormous county, including the northern part of New York State as well as all of the present State of Vermont and, in theory, extending westward to the Pacific Ocean. This large county was progressively reduced in size by the separation of several counties until 1791, when Saratoga County as well as Rensselaer County were split off from Albany County.
During the nineteenth century, Saratoga County NY Real Estate was an important industrial center. Its location 30 miles north of Albany on the Delaware and Hudson Railway, as well as its proximity to water power from the Hudson River and Kayaderosseras Creek, led to rapid industrial development beginning in 1810. Some of the most important industries were paper mills, tanneries, foundries, and textile mills
As of the census of 2000, there were 200,635 people, 78,165 households, 53,699 families residing in the county. The average household size was 2.49 and the average family size was 2.98.
