The Corners 
Glens Falls Collaborative Community History Project  
 This site is under development

Welcome to our town!  

The community of Glens Falls is small and proud. Like many "up-state N.Y." towns, we have a rich cultural and industrial past that began because of our location along the Hudson River corridor.  In the late 18th century, Glens Falls was originally known as "The Corners" -- the name describing the convergence of the north-south and east-west crossroads through the bustling hub of activity at the "bend in the river."

Through the research efforts of volunteers at  the Chapman Historical Museum, a comprehensive Internet site of the history of Glens Falls is being continually developed.  It is our hope that using primary documents, public records and oral histories from extensive local resources, an in-depth view of the physical and cultural growth of Glens Falls will be understood.  Please look further as we invite you to join us in our town!
