History has it's Eyes on Schuylerville
This estate was the country home of General Philip Schuyler both before and after the Battles of Saratoga. The British burned the original house and its outbuildings during their retreat. The present house, erected in 1777 shortly after Burgoyne’s surrender, was the center of Schuyler’s extensive farming and milling operations.
The Saratoga Surrender Site marks the location of the first instance in world history that the British Army capitulated. It is where British General John Burgoyne surrendered his army to American General Horatio Gates on October 17, 1777. This prompted French recognition of United States’ independence, an alliance between the two nations, and an international war between Britain and France.
Commemorating Burgoyne's surrender to Gates, this 155-foot stone obelisk (completed in 1883) stands where Burgoyne's camp entrenched during the campaign's final days. When open, climb stairs to the top for a 360 degree view of the Hudson River Valley.
Parks and Recreational Amenities abound in Schuylerville
