Schenectady Stockade Historic District
Schenectady began as a 17th century Dutch settlement at the junction of the Binnekill and Mohawk River. Burned in 1690 by a French and Indian raiding party, it was rebuilt and became an important river port. This oldest section of the city, called the Stockade, features many 18th century homes. A number of early structures feature the Dutch colonial style with steeply pitched gable end facing the street. Other homes follow the Federal and English Georgian styles.
In 1965 Schenectady’s Stockade became New York State’s first National Register Historic District.
