Tribes Hill


Tribes Hill (Tripes) lies partly in the Town of Mohawk and partly in Amsterdam. It received its name from circumstances that upon this elevation, the various Indian tribes were accustomed to assemble. In 1878 it contained a post office, a Methodist and Roman Catholic church, a store, school house, a number of shops, and a population of about 200. At the railroad station near the village, a suspension bridge spanned the Mohawk River, connecting it with Fort Hunter. [1]
