The official website of the Village of Hoosick Falls, NY—the Grandma Moses Discovery Village. Located on the Hoosic River, among the bucolic foothills of the Green Mountains in the town of Hoosick, in northeast corner of New York's Rensselaer County. Home of the historic Walter A. Wood Mowing and Reaping Machinery Company—once the largest company of its kind in the world. The former factory town is now a picturesque quaint village with scenery that still inspires artists like it did with Grandma Moses in years past.
Inspiring Since 1827

Hoosac Helps was back in action last week. The "triangle" at routes 22 and 7 which has the landscaping and sign that welcomes visitors to our area was in rough shape. The weeds had become overgrown and the sign was in disrepair. The faculty of Hoosac School made quick work of it and pulled out over three pick-up truck loads of weeds and spruced up the sign. Just in time for leaf peepers to admire!
Here in our little corner of the region people have been working passionately to promote what we have, and convince others that this is a great place to live, and start a business. From everyday-people behind the scenes, to our elected officials, to our community groups like HAYC3, and CiviCure, to the Hoosick Rising initiative, every effort is having a positive impact and it's starting to show. Stories in the Eastwick Press, The Bennington Banner, The Manchester Journal, The Rensselaer Chamber newsletter, The Hill Country Observer, and the Albany Times Union are showing that people are taking notice of everything we offer now, and recognizing our greater future potential. It's Happening in Hoosick! The next Hoosick Rising Meeting will be September 25th at 6:30pm in the Armory.
The newspaper of record for the Village of Hoosick Falls is the Eastwick Press. Public notices will be posted in the paper.
The Hoosick Barn Quilt Trail is ready! A community-wide celebration of art and rural culture in Hoosick created by members of the community. 31 barn quilts have been hung throughout the Hoosick area, all built, painted and hung thanks to a coordinated community effort. Maps are available at the HAYC3 Armory to drive the route and view the quilts among our pastoral countryside. If you drive the trail, be sure to take a selfie and share it on your social networks using the hashtag #BQSelfie!
