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.

Village to Get New Entrance Signs. The vote is in!

The Village Board has voted to purchase new signs for the Village entrances on Rt 22 and Hill Road. Trustee Kevin O'Malley has been working with Flying Cow Designs on the look of the signs. The signs will be hand-carved and painted, and made from a rot and weather resistant closed-cell PVC—which will resemble real wood. They will also feature a reproduction of a Grandma Moses painting. Over 150 votes were cast and design number two has been chosen by a 69%-31% margin. We want to thank all the people who voted.

Emerald Ash Borer

Emerald Ash Borer Alert!

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), is an insect which poses a threat to the ash trees in our region. A large population of EAB is established in southern Albany County to the west, and insects have been found in the purple hanging traps situated in Stephentown and Massachusetts. EAB has killed millions of ash trees in the Midwest since its introduction into the United States. It is estimated that 7% of the trees in Rensselaer County's woodlands are vulnerable ashes, with untold numbers in parks, home and commercial landscapes, and along roads. When these trees become infested and start to die, questions will be raised and action will need to be taken. The dead trees will present safety hazards as well as economic and aesthetic losses.
