Welcome to Ballston
Ballston is a town in Saratoga County, NY. The population is around 10,000 and the name came from one of the first settlers Eliphalet Ball who was a minister. The area was originally called Ballton or Ball's Town. The original owners of the area were the Mcdonald brothers, Eliphalet Ball paid the brothers one barrel of rum for the rights to name the town after himself, and over time the name was shortened to Ballston.
Early dwellers of the area in this area feared attacks from Indians, who inhabited the region and who resented the establishment of European buildings on their sacred grounds. One of Ballston's historic sites is Indian Rock, a large boulder on the East Side of Ballston Lake where Mohawk tribesmen reputedly took white captives to torture and kill them.
Ballston Lake, a narrow, 3.7-mile long lake with an unknown maximum depth in the south of the region, was called "Shanantaha" by natives. It was known to early white settlers as Long Lake. The lake was part of the Mohawk River during the glacial age and archeological digs have unearthed artifacts indicating settlement around the lake as early as 3,500 BCE.
For a long time the depth of Ballston Lake was not determined, due to the multiple caves that prevented divers from going to the bottom.
The Town of Ballston also includes these communities: Ballston Center, Ballston Creek, Ballston Spa, Burnt Hills, and Ballston Lake.
Although Saratoga Springs may be more famous, Ballston Spa's mineral springs made it a fashionable destination and "watering hole" in its own right in the nineteenth century. The town is actually the seat of Saratoga County and was founded several years earlier than the Spa City, in 1771.
National Bottle Museum Located in downtown Ballston Spa, the National Bottle Museum highlights Saratoga County's role in bottle making, one of America's first major industries. Visit the museum to view the vast collection of glass bottles in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Exhibits cover mineral water, decorative bottles, glass paperweights, and methods of accurately dating bottles.
