Fort Edward Business Directory
Washington County is one of
Adirondack's neighbors of lush valley and farm country.
Fort Edward, or "Wahcoloosensoochaleva" as the old Indian called this
particular region. Meaning "Great Carrying Place" as the Hudson River was not
possible for passage and the Indians had to portal their vessels over land
into the headwaters of Lake Champlain. Development started after Sir
Francis Nicholson was sent to built a stockade and roads. Fort Edward,
was first named Fort Lyman (after the additional fort built under the
direction of Philehas Lyman), then changed to Fort Edward in 1755 in
the honor of Edward, the Duke of New York and Albany. In the
1800's, clothing mills and other industries such as blast furnace,
sawmills, and stoneware came to build Fort Edward's community. Today,
we share with you Fort Edward's current businesses. Please patronize.
