LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 225th Anniversary of the Town
of Saratoga, New York

WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to honor and commem-
orate the proud and distinguished histories of the communities which
comprise the noble body of this great Empire State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the 225th Anniversary of the Town of Saratoga, New York, in Sara-
toga County, New York; and
WHEREAS, Saratoga was founded because it was at the "four corners"
along the Hudson River with easy access to the Mohawk River, Lake Cham-
plain, and Connecticut River Valley; the Town of Saratoga has a rich
history playing important roles in three world wars in the 18th Century
including a series of battles in both King George's War and the American
War of Independence; and
WHEREAS, The Town of Saratoga was a hub of international trade for the
rich natural resources from the area 225 years ago; the waterways were
an important source of both power for the mills and transportation to
deliver products to a worldwide market; and
WHEREAS, The community became a great source of wealth and power for a
number of prominent families including the Schuylers and the Rensse-
laers; today, its natural resources and waterways support a number of
thriving agricultural and recreational businesses, which make it well
poised to join the rest of Saratoga County in a thriving 21st Century;
WHEREAS, The Town of Stillwater played a significant role in
Saratoga's military history, including the Battles of Saratoga during
the American Revolution, and was host to the first meeting of the Sara-
toga County Board of Supervisors in 1791; and
WHEREAS, Remaining fruitful over the ebb and flow of decades of growth
and change, the Town of Saratoga continues its commitment to enhancing
the quality of life of its citizens, ensuring a positive business,
institutional and educational climate, and providing all essential
services; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the Town of Saratoga, New York,
recognizing the significance of the role it continues to play in the
life of the community of the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Town of Saratoga.
