Saratoga County, New York was formed from Albany County on February 7, 1791. The county seat is the Village of Ballston Spa, towns of Ballston and Milton. From the Saratoga County Historian, “The Hudson River forms the eastern and northern boundary of the county, and the Mohawk River, the southernmost boundary.” And “Saratoga County was also a gateway for the westward migration of many settlers, as the Mohawk River provided a natural passageway through the Appalachian Mountains. Both the historic Champlain Canal, located on the Hudson River, and the Erie Canal, located on the Mohawk River, operated in this county.”
