Harmony Mills


When the mill opened in 1837 it employed 250: one out of every four Cohoes residents. The business was sold in 1850 beginning a 61-year period of success for the mills. An addition was built on Mill #3 in 1872, making it the country’s largest complete cotton mill. While excavating to build the mill in 1866, the contractors dug into an ancient sinkhole and found the 11,000-year-old bones of a mastodon on display at the New York State Museum in Albany. Now a National Historic Landmark, the building houses luxury loft apartments.
