Schodack NY Real Estate includes Rice Corners, Van Hoesen Station, Braeside, Brookview, Castleton, Morey  Park, Nassau Lake, and Shivers Corners.  The Town of Schodack which is South of Troy and East of Albany is  in Rensselaer County and commuting to either is easy.   The Hudson River is the westerly border.  Formerly a farming community today is a place where commuters live.  The population was 12,794 at the 2010 census.

The town of Schodack was organized March 17, 1795, when Rensselaerwyck was divided. By the general law dividing all the counties of the State into towns, passed April 7, 1801.

The chief village of the Mohican Indians was for many generations located in Schodack, and near by were other Indian villages of less importance.  The name Schodack is a corruption of the Indian name Esquatak, meaning “the fireplace of the nation,” so called because the council-seat of the famed Mohican Indians was located in this town.  Beside Esquatak the Indians had villages called Potkoke, Wyomenock and others.

It appears to be a settled fact that the first white man to set foot upon the soil of the town of Schodack and of Rensselaer county was Henry Hudson, in 1609, whose voyage and exploration in this vicinity have been described in a previous chapter.   His landing probably was at or very near the present site of the village of Castleton.   Rich in history, Schodack was settled by the Dutch soon after Henry Hudson’s exploration of the Hudson River.

Before the Dutch came, the land was farmed and hunted by Indians of the Mohican tribe.   The hamlet of Schodack Landing, which was an early center of river trade, still contains many old homes and is listed as a National Historic Site.   Many of Schodack’s long-time residents are of Dutch descent.

The town was first settled in the 17th Century and was part of the Manor of Rensselaerswyck in the New Netherland colony.   The town was established in 1795 when Rensselaerwyck was divided.   In 1896, Part of the town was used to provide some territory for the Towns of Nassau and Berlin.  The Town celebrated its Bicentennial in 1995.

Schodack’s Park is a source of pride and pleasure to residents and visitors.   The park was created during the 1990s by volunteers (including crews from the Highway Department, who are recognized on a plaque on the bridge below) and with support from town government and local business. Located on Poyneer Road, the Town Park is just one of several such sites for relaxation, recreation and nature walks.   Birdwatchers find the park an exceptional viewing area for species ranging from the occasional bald eagle to common eastern forest- and open-space birds.

The Town Park offers varied settings, from meadows to streamside trails, about a mile from Schodack Town Hall. There is also a state park, with a boat launch, picnic facilities and other amenities at Schodack Island, on the east banks of the Hudson River (the entrance is from Route 9-J in the Schodack Landing area).

The Town of Schodack is located south of the town of East Greenbush.  The towns of Stuyvesant and Kinderhook in Columbia County are to the south, the town of Nassau is to the east, and the town of Coeymans is located across the Hudson River in Albany County in the west.   The New York Thruway Ext, Interstate 90, US Route 9, and US Route 20 pass through the town.
