Saratoga County, New York
Saratoga County was formed from its parent, Albany County in 1791.
During the nineteenth century, Saratoga County was an important industrial area. Its location just north of the Capital Region with abundant rivers and first-class transportation routes made it ideal for industry to flourish.
Saratoga Springs draws thousands of visitors each year to its rare mineral springs, world class racetrack, and popular gambling house.
Today Saratoga County is the fastest growing area in New York State. It is one of the most desirable residential locations due to its family-style villages and easy communting distances.
