Exploring Saratoga County yields many interesting places and sites of both national and statewide significance. Along its southern and eastern edges, flow the Mohawk and its barge canals, “gateway” to Buffalo and the western frontier, as well as the Hudson with its many locks, an important transportation route from Canada to NYC. At the Saratoga Battlefield one can relive the “turning point” of the American Revolution, and at Grant Cottage one can see where President Ulysses S. Grant spent his last weeks finishing his memoir.
