Cambridge New York

Although one-third of Cambridge Village lies within the Town of Cambridge, the town remains a very rural area. The only population concentrations outside the village are the tiny hamlets of Coila, South Cambridge and Center Cambridge.

Covered Bridge in Cambridge

The entire township outside of Cambridge Village is a scenic delight. It abounds with the beautiful patchwork scenery made famous in the paintings of area native and renowned artist, Grandma Moses.

Although many of Cambridge's residents work outside the area, the mainstay of the town's

economy has always been agriculture. Today the strength of the agricultural community lies in the many successful dairy farms. In addition, one of the two major poultry farms in the area is located in Cambridge.

Although there are no schools within the Town of Cambridge, educational needs are adequately met by Cambridge Central School (in White Creek), Greenwich Central School and Hoosic Valley Central School (in neighboring Rensselaer County). The religious needs of outlying areas are served by hamlet churches and churches of seven different denominations are located in Cambridge Village.

Recreational activities abound in Cambridge. Many vacation cabins and home sites are located in our area where one not only enjoys rural living, but has easy access to the cultural life at Saratoga, Glens Falls and Bennington. Water quality is high, offering excellent fishing in area lakes, the Battenkill River and other streams. First-rate camping facilities help make swimming, boating, canoeing and hiking readily available to all. Challenging golf courses are a

lso in the area, and plenty of tennis courts, too. In the area's hills and woodlands one can hunt for deer or wild turkey or ski cross-county. A family downhill ski area is only 15 minutes away.

Cambridge was founded in 1773, and many of the homes reflect the architecture of the period. History is evident everywhere, and it blends well with the present. The "Washington County Post," America's oldest weekly newspaper dating back to 1788, is printed here.

The tree-shaded streets of Cambridge Village invite you to window shop for crafts and antiques, sample the delights of the local pastry shops and experience the atmosphere that is unique to Cambridge's National Register Historic District.
