About Day

Day, New York is a town in northwestern Saratoga County with an area of 70 square miles and a population of 856 as of the 2010 census.

 

 

 

 

 

 

History: The first residents of the area were the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca Native Americans. In this fertile valley the tribes Bear, Turtle, and Wolf clans grew corn (maze), beans and squash. They supplemented their diets with wild fruits and berries in addition to hunting and fishing. Sacandaga is Mohawk for The Land of Waving Grass.

This town was once an ancient lake and then covered by a glacier that left behind the large rocks evidenced along the shoreline of the Sacandaga and throughout the region. As the glaciers reseeded the lake again formed behind a natural dam created by glacial fill at the spot where the Conklingville Dam now stands.

The first European settlers made their home in the area 1797.

Abundant timber and hydropower provided the essential resources for a flourishing lumber industry first established around the turn of the century. Hemlock bark was used by local tanneries. Woodware factories produced clothespins, broom handles, barrel staves and washboards.

The town was created from the Towns of Edinburg and Hadley in 1819. Originally called Concord local residents decided to change the same to Day when it was learned that there was already a Concord, New York. The town was named for Eliphaz Day an noted early lumberman who was drowned while running logs downstream.

The Great Sacandaga River which ran thought the southern portion of the town would often flood bringing destruction to downstate communities as far south as Albany, NY

In 1928 a dam was constructed in the Town of Hadley just east of Conklingville. The project took two years to complete at a cost of $12 million. 10 bridges needed to be constructed. 12,000 homes either relocated or destroyed. 3,872 graves would be transburied to higher ground.

In 1930 the flood gates were closed and the Great Sacandaga Lake began to fill with 283 billion gallons for water. The Lake crosses the entire lower third of the town.
