Images of America: New York). The influx of New England entrepreneurs transformed Lansingburgh into a thriving village. During the 19th century, industries in oilcloth, brush making, valves, knit goods, beer, crackers and biscuits, scales, and shirts and collars flourished. Lansingburgh businesses became world famous and continued to be so even after the village was made part of the city of Troy in 1900. The Burgh, as it is called today, has made its own contributions to national politics, literature, and sports. In this new book, the author invites us on a journey to an earlier Lansingburgh.

An area of hills, forests, and river plains, Lansingburgh is the oldest settled region and the first chartered village in New York’s Rensselaer County. Its rich history began with Abraham Jacob Lansing, who, in 1763, established the area that encompasses Lansingburgh on the eastern banks of the historic Hudson River as a 5,000-acre farm. Eight years later, Lansing laid out his land into a square of 2 by 1.5 miles, with 288 building lots, streets, alleys, and an oblong square village green in the center. The influx of New England entrepreneurs transformed Lansingburgh into a thriving village. During the 19th century, industries in oilcloth, brush making, valves, knit goods, beer, crackers and biscuits, scales, and shirts and collars flourished. Lansingburgh businesses became world famous and continued to be so even after the village was made part of the city of Troy in 1900. The Burgh, as it is called today, has made its own contributions to national politics, literature, and sports. In this new book, the author invites us on a journey to an earlier Lansingburgh. More than 200 photographs, most from the archives of the late historian Frances Broderick, show the people, businesses, landmarks, and events that give Lansingburgh its proud 228 years of history.

I grew up in lansingburgh in the 40s and 50s. The pictures and stories brought back many pleasant memories. A well done book.

Don Rittner wrote the text and edited this book. The two hundred photographs were from the archive of Frances Broderick, who was a historian of Lansingburgh.

When I was growing up in Troy , Lansingburgh was already part of the City of Troy. We used to call it , 'North Troy' or 'The Burgh'.

I remember it well because my father Reuben Kelly Freedman of Blessed Memory had his junk shop very close to Lansingburgh.

I also remember it because my father's friend the late Freeman Nielsen a brushmaker and true gentleman had his place in Lansingburgh . We would go to visit them on Sunday, and visit also Freeman's only child called 'Sonny' who was in a wheelchair. Freeman's wife, Sonny's mother had died in childbirth, and Sonny had been born paralyzed, and with other serious mental limitations. The care that his father gave him through those lonely years was always an example to us of human devotion and sacrifice. My father used to praise Freeman Nielsen not only as a great craftsman but as a wonderful human being.

He was of course only one resident of Lansingburgh.

Another was Herman Melville. I can remember standing on the banks of the Hudson and looking across the river in Lansingburgh from a place which supposedly was the place Melville was born.

The photos of this album and the description of the author suggest Lansingburgh had an importance in the nineteenth century it did not quite preserve in the twentieth.

I always remember it as a district of houses upon houses without any real shopping area, or downtown. I always felt a strangeness being there, and felt it far far away from home.

How strange time and life is, for now writing this more than an ocean and so many years away I feel it close.

The work done in assembling this album and somehow reviving a certain time and place in history is admirable.
