Northern Rensselaer County
One of Northern Rensselaer County’s greatest resources is its scenic beauty. Rolling hills, mountains, and the two rivers—the Walloomsac and the Hoosic—which wind throughout the area, provide visitors and residents alike with breathtaking views and tranquil, private spots to enjoy the simple country pleasures of hiking, canoeing, or picnicking, and of course—spectacular trout fishing.
In the Village of Hoosick Falls, the tree-lined streets with their graceful, Victorian dwellings retain much of the character and charm of the turn of the century. And summer concerts by the community band in Wood’s Park still remind people why Norman Rockwell and Grandma Moses took inspiration from the area and it’s people.
Northern Rensselaer County has five school systems. There are three K-12 public schools; the Berlin Central School District, the Hoosic Falls Central School District and the Hoosic Valley Central School District. St. Mary’s Academy is a Catholic K-8 elementary school and the Hoosac School is an Episcopal Boarding School for grades 8-12.
