The Town of Colonie has often been referred to as the "Crossroads of the Capital District" or tri-city area. Colonie Township contains about 57 square miles of land situated in the north-east corner of Albany County, and bordered on its north by the Mohawk River and on its east by the Hudson River. It was the last town to be "removed from" the once larger town of Watervliet that formed what is todays Albany County. Since Colonial times people had to cross through what is now Colonie in order to make their way between the cities of Albany, Schenectady or Troy. Colonie’s earliest roads included the Loudon Ferry Road, which crossed at a ford of the Mohawk River near the New York Power Authority property on the Cohoes Crescent Road. The Loudon Ferry Road (today’s Rt. 9) was established in 1757 as a military road from Albany to Lake George to support British and American forces during the French and Indian Wars.
