Lansingburgh1 was formed from Troy and Petersburgh on March 20, 1807. A tract was annexed from Schaghticoke in 1819. A part of Troy was taken off in 1836, and a part of Brunswick was taken off in 1839. It is a narrow strip of land extending along the Hudson River. In the southern part, the river intervale [flat] is one-fourth of a mile in width, but in the north, the bluffs rise directly from the water. In the northeast is a high, rocky hill, 400 to 600 feet above the river. The high bluff east of the village is called Diamond Rock. The streams are Deepi Kil and Koola Kil. The soil is gravelly and clayey loam. The people are largely engaged in the manufacture of brushes, oilcloths, flax cordage, and malt liquors. A lock at Troy admits the passage of sloops up to this place2. Lansingburgh3 (p.v.) contains extensive brush, oilcloth, and other manufactories, the Lansingburgh Academy4, a Female Seminary5, six churches, two printing offices, and about 4,000 inhabitants. A covered bridge at Lansingburgh crosses the Hudson River to Waterford. The Troy & Boston Railroad passes through the town. The village was founded by Abraham Jacob Lansing in about 1770. It was first organized under the name of "Stone Arabia" in 17716. In May 1775, 50 of the citizens - at the head of whom was A. J. Lansing, the proprietor - signed articles of association pledging themselves to sustain the measures recommended by the Continental or Provincial Congress. The first act of incorporation under the State government was passed April 5, 1790, at which time the village was included in the town of "Rensselaerwyck"7. In 1791, Lansingburgh was included in the town of Troy. The place rapidly increased in population and early became an important trading and commercial village. The first church (Reformed Protestant Dutch) was organized in 1784; it was reorganized in 1792 as a Presbyterian church8. Speigletown is a village of 15 houses9.

1 The town was named from the village, and the latter was named from Abraham Jacob Lansing, its founder.
2This lock was completed and opened for use on September 10, 18__. In about 1800, the State expended large sums for the improvement of navigation to this place - and granted a lottery for that purpose.
3 Formerly known as "New City". It was once claimed by Vermont as being within that state's jurisdiction.
4 The Lansingburgh Academy, chartered February 8, 1796. By an act passed February 20, 1816, the trustees of this academy were authorized to subscribe 1,000 shares to the Bank of Lansingburgh. A. Reed, from New Windsor, Connecticut, commenced school here in 1793, in a gambrel-roofed building, used as the first meeting house. Rev. Dr. Lee taught the languages at the same time.
5 In October 1857, Rev. Salmon Hatch opened a private female seminary and boarding school. It has about 100 pupils and employs nine teachers.
6 At the first meeting in "Stone Arabia", held January 1, 1771, it was voted that A. J. Lansing and his heirs forever should be a committee of the village, with a power equal to each of the four annually chosen by the public.
7 By an act of 1790, John Van Rensselaer, Charles Tillman, Elijah James, Aaron Ward, Stephen Goreham, Ezra Hickock and Levinus Lansing were appointed trustees, to take charge of the wastelands of the village and to perform certain municipal duties, their successors to be elected annually.
8 The census reports eight churches: two Methodist Episcopal, two Presbyterian, one Baptist, one African Methodist, one Protestant Episcopal and one Roman Catholic.
9 The first settlers of this village were Charles W. Douglass and John Follet.


The following information is from Gazetteer and Business Directory of Rensselaer County, N. Y., for 1870-71, compiled and published by Hamilton Child, 1870.

The town of Lansingburgh contains the village of Lansingburgh, formerly called New City, and the village of Speigletown.

Lansingburgh contains eight churches, viz.: one Baptist, one Episcopal, two Presbyterian, one Methodist Episcopal, one Free Methodist, one Zion Methodist and one Roman Catholic; a female seminary; two newspaper printing offices; two banks; several large manufacturers of brushes, oil cloths, bricks, rope and cordage; and about 4,000 inhabitants. The brush factory of John Ames gives employment to 80 men and about 200 boys and girls, making about $500,000 worth annually.

Speigletown, in the northeast part, contains a Methodist church, a school house, a hotel, a blacksmith shop, a wagon shop, and about a dozen dwellings.

Lansingburgh is connected with Waterford by a covered bridge across the Hudson River, and with Troy by horse railroad and the Troy & Boston Railroad.

The village was founded by Abraham Jacob Lansing in about the year 1770. It was first organized in 1771, under the name of Stone Arabia.

In 1790, Ananias Platt, an innkeeper of Lansingburgh, obtained from the Legislature a grant to the exclusive right to run a stage between Lansingburgh and Albany. In 1794, it made two trips a day each way, in 1795 it made six trips, and in 1796 he ran a stage to Schenectady four times a day. The same year, a Lansingburgh newspaper says, 20 stages pass and re-pass daily between Lansingburgh, Troy, Waterford and Albany, carrying more than 150 passengers.

George and Benjamin Tibbits removed from Warwick, Rhode Island to Lansingburgh, soon after the close of the Revolutionary War. They opened a store and continued in the mercantile business at this place until 1797, when they removed to Troy.

Rev. Jonas Coe officiated as pastor of the Presbyterian church for several years, alternating between this village and Troy.

Trinity Church (Episcopal) was organized in the early part of January 1804. Rev. David Butler, one of the first class of deacons ordained by Bishop Seabury, was the first pastor. There have been six rectors of the parish since its organization. The present rector is Byron J. Hall. On December 23, 1868, the church was burned, since which a chapel has been built at a cost of $400. A new stone church is in process of erection, which will cost when completed about $40,000. It is expected that the new church will be completed before the close of the present year [1870].

The Methodist Church was organized at a very early day, New City being one of the first circuits formed. In 1803, Reverends Laban Clark and Martin Ruter preached there. Under the influence of Mr. Clark's first sermon, Chandley Lambert was awakened and converted, and afterwards became a preacher. The first church edifice was erected in 1810, chiefly through the instrumentality of Reverends Joel Ketcham and Elijah Chichester. It stood on the bank of the river and was occupied about 20 years. A church was then erected on Congress Street and continued to be occupied until the present house was erected in 1849, under the pastoral charge of Rev. S. Parks. The present membership is 365, and the value of the church property is about $25,000. Rev. W. R. Brown is the present pastor.

John Street Baptist Church was organized July 28, 1858, with 28 members. Rev. A. B. Whipple was the first pastor. Reverends Sellick, Barlow and Merriman were successively pastors. The first church edifice was purchased of the Second Presbyterian Society on August 20, 1860. The present value of the church edifice is $5,000. The number of members is 102. A. B. Whipple is the present pastor.

St. Augustine's Church (Roman Catholic) was established in 1842. The first church edifice was a small frame building at the corner of John and North streets. A new church was erected in 1864 on the corner of John and Market streets. It is of the Gothic style of architecture and cost $40,000. In 1869 school buildings were erected in connection with the church at a cost of $10,000. Rev. J. Shannehan was the first pastor. Rev. Thomas Galberry, O.S.A., is the present pastor.

The population of the town in 1865 was 6,072, and its area was 5,253 acres.
