Through our travels we have learned that much of what we know about our region is from the stories passed down from mothers to their children. Cultural traditions, customs, recipes, family histories... Oftentimes women are absent from early American history books, but just imagine the hardships and challenges they had to overcome settling in the Mohawk Valley wilderness! Visit Fort Klock on Memorial Day to get a glimpse into our past.

The Mohawk River, the West Canada and many other creeks run through St. Johnsville. It is the power of this water that has drawn people to settle here over the centuries. Dozens of mills once lined the banks of these creeks. Wagons fills with processed goods traveled from these mills to the Mohawk River (and then the canal system) that made it possible to transport these goods throughout the region, making St. Johnsville a very prosperous community.

The Old Stone Grist Mill
The highway records for 1839 establish the partnership of Leonard and Curran in the operation of the old grist mill. Today this historic mill is the amazing INn by the Mill, a unique, private waterside B&B. From it's secret rooms and underground tunnel used by slave traveling the undergound railroad, to the collection of scientific inventions, memorabilia and ice cream parlor, this place is truly unlike any other!
