The small village of Rensselaer Falls, in upstate New York, town of Canton, played a key role in shaping the history of St. Lawrence County. Exchanges in commerce and mutual progression between locations throughout the region were imperative to this endeavor. Modern technology, involving both natural resources and man made efforts, impacted the economic and political dynamics of St. Lawrence County.
Rensselaer Falls, due to its strategic location between multiple waterways and already established towns, has potential to be a powerful village. Because of multiple tragedies like fires and floods, Rensselaer Falls’ growth has thus far been underdeveloped. Let us move forward together to continue our legacy and local sustainability.
