Cranesville

Amsterdam Town, Montgomery County, NY

In 1878, Cranseville was a postal village located on the north bank of the Mohawk River about three miles east of Amsterdam Village; it was a small station on the N. Y. Central Railroad, containing, in addition to the post office, a church, hotel, store, saw mill, and a cluster of comfortable dwellings, mainly of farmers. It was named in honor of David Crane, who settled there in 1804, and kept the hotel for many years. [1]
