"Glenn Falls", 1841

Glens Falls is a city in Warren County, New York, United States. It is part of the Glens Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area.[2] The population was 14,354 at the 2000 census.[3] The name is taken from a large waterfall in the Hudson River, located at the southern border of the city.

Glens Falls is located in the southeast corner of Warren County, surrounded by the town of Queensbury to the north, east, and west, and by the Hudson River and Saratoga County to the south. Glens Falls is known as "Hometown U.S.A.", a title given to it by Look Magazine in 1944. The city has also referred to itself as the "Empire City."[4]

History

As a halfway point between Forts Edward and William Henry, the falls was the site of several battles during the French-Indian War and the Revolutionary War. The hamlet was mostly destroyed by fire twice during the latter conflict, forcing the Quakers to abandon the settlement until the war ended in 1783. Fire also ravaged the village in 1864, 1884, and 1902.[4]

The area was originally called "Chepontuc" (Iroquois; "difficult place to get around"), also referred to as the "Great Carrying Place," but was renamed "The Corners" by settlers.[4] In 1766 it was renamed Wing's Falls for Abraham Wing, leader of the group of Quakers that established the permanent settlement. Wing's claim to the name of the hamlet was transferred to Colonel Johannes Glen of Schenectady in 1788, either on collection of a debt, as a result of a game of cards, or in exchange for hosting a party for mutual friends, depending on which local legend is believed.[4][5][6] Colonel Glen was delighted to change the name to "Glen's Falls," sometimes spelled "Glenn's," which was later abbreviated to "Glens Falls."

A post office was established in 1808.[4] Glens Falls became an incorporated village in 1839,[4] and was re-incorporated in 1874 and 1887[7], expanding the village to the present-day city limits.[8] The city charter was granted by the state legislature in 1908[7][8] at which time, the city became a separate entity from the town of Queensbury.

Historic sites

Glens Falls has two historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the equivalent New York State Register of Historic places. The Fredella Avenue historic district includes a series of unique concrete block structures. The Three Squares Historic District comprises the majority of the Central Business District.[9] In addition, several individual structures are listed, some below. Glens Falls does not have a local preservation law protecting these historic resources from demolition or alteration.

Crandall Public Library – While the library has existed since 1893, it did not have its own permanent home until 1931, with the completion of the library building in City Park, on property willed to the library by local entrepreneur Henry Crandall. The building was designed by Charles A. Platt and built by Robert Rheinlander; it was renovated and expanded in 1969. Its first renovation and expansion since then was completed in November 2008, involving the demolition of the 1969 addition.[10][11] The library is a part of the Southern Adirondack Library System.

Civil War Monument – A limestone obelisk located in the intersection of Glen, South, and Bay streets, the momument was dedicated in 1872 to honor the 644 men from Queensbury who served in the Civil War. Ninety-five names, those of the men who died, are engraved on the monument.[12] Many battles of the war are listed.

DeLong House – Presently the home of the Glens Falls/Queensbury Historical Association and the Chapman Historical Museum. A Greek Revival and Second Empire edifice on the corner of Glen and Bacon Streets. A Queen Anne style Carriage Barn also sits on the property.

The Feeder Canal– Across from this historic canal is a hydro-electric power-plant on the Hudson River at Glens Falls. The canal was created circa 1820 to feed water into the Champlain Canal. During the early 19th Century the New York State Canal System served a crucial portion of the state's economy. In Glens Falls, lime, marble, lumber, and agricultural products were shipped from the docks at the base of Canal Street.

First Presbyterian Church – The fifth house of worship of this Congregation chartered in 1803 was constructed in 1929. It was designed by Ralph Adams Cram in his "presbyterian style" of neo-gothic architecture.

Fort Amherst Road – Located near this road is the location where Fort Amherst once was. The fort is no longer extant, however portions of the wood foundations were known as late as 1880. The fort constituted a block house marking the half-way point on the road between Fort Ann and Fort William Henry at the head of Lake George. This Fort system, erected by the British, was built to secure the northern territories of the colony from incursions from the French during the French and Indian War. A restored fort house complex is available for viewing in the nearby town of Fort Ann.

Louis Fiske Hyde House – The center among a triplet of revival type residences constructed for the daughters of Samuel Pruyn by the architects Robert Rheinlander and Henry Forbes Bigelow, Hyde House currently houses the The Hyde Collection, a world class museum of European, American, and contemporary art. The principal collection is presented in its original domestic context as a private collection.

The Oldest Building in Glens Falls – In 1864 there was a massive fire that destroyed most of buildings in the central business district. The oldest building in Glens Falls, located in the downtown area, is one of the few buildings in the city that predates 1864. The stone and brick structure at the bottom of the hill was erected circa 1815 and served as Calvin Robbin's Blacksmith Shop.

Quaker Meeting House – The Quaker Meeting House, an Italianate edifice on Ridge Street, was built in 1875 and originally contained no heating system.

St. Mary-St. Alphonsus Regional Catholic School, formerly known as St. Mary's Academy, is located on the corner of Warren and Church streets. This is another example of neo-Gothic architecture in Glens Falls by Ralph Adams Cram. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It features a Great Hall with a two-story stained glass window designed by Henry Lee Willett Studios of Philadelphia.
