Coxsackie NY History

Originally inhabited by the Mahican Native American tribe, a sub tribe of the Algonquin nation, the first European to build a home in Coxsackie was Pieter Bronck. Pieter built the original section of what is now the Bronck museum in 1663.

The name Coxsackie is said to be derived from a Native American term, and over 350 years has had various spellings. There are also multiple translations with references to: owls, geese, and aspects of the nearby river. “Hoot of the Owl”, “Place of Owls”, and “Migrating Geese” are a few of these translations. Even the best scholars have not agreed to the exact meaning, but locally, the widely accepted meaning has to do with owls, and the owl has often been used a local symbol.

While the earliest homes were built in what is now West Coxsackie, as evident by the many stones houses still standing, later community growth came in the 1800’s utilizing the Hudson River: Winter ice harvesting, brick making, ship building, metal foundries, and river transportation were the dominant industries.

Downtown Coxsackie still retains the appearance of a well-established river community, and in 1980, the Reed Street Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The original industries in Coxsackie were agriculture, dairy farming, and boarding houses. A state correctional facility provides a major boost to the local economy.

With its close proximity to Albany, the Village is seeing a resurgence of residential interest. A growing commercial district has appeared West of the Village along Route 9W. The Town includes a portion of the Sleepy Hollow Lake Development.
