The Village of Fort Edward NY, is an Established Community in Washington County.

Fort Edward NY is a community immersed with history and heritage. Its traditional values date back to the Revolutionary War, when it established a strong connection to the Hudson River. Soldiers traveled from Fort Edward to Fort William Henry in Lake George by passing through Glens Falls NY.

Local businesses and industries provide many jobs in Fort Edward. Paper manufacturing, sawmills and clothing mills were the platform that helped develop Fort Edward. Today, many custom manufacturing facilities still run production today. Fort Edward is easily accessible by rail! Amtrak railroad lines run through the village making two stops a day.
