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

As long as the weather cooperates, they have chosen Friday, April 25th as their first night.read the full story
