Topic: Town of Watervliet into the City of Watervliet
Time: Feb 17, 2022 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

The Troy Irish Genealogy Society February meeting (Thursday 2/17 at 6:30pm EST) will feature Tom Ragosta, Watervliet City Historian and president of the Watervliet Historical Society. The link for the session will be available next week.

Tom’s presentation discusses the Town of Watervliet’s colonial origin from the manor of Rensselaerwyck to the fragmentation of the town from its founding in 1788 into smaller towns and villages. It also documents the changes that resulted in the transformation of the Town of Watervliet into the City of Watervliet. We’ll discuss the significance of three of these villages – Port Schuyler (formerly Washington) Gibbonsville and West Troy – and their merger into the incorporated Village of West Troy and then the City of Watervliet in 1896.
