Edinburg, New York is a town in northwestern Saratoga County with an area of 67 square miles of which 60 square miles is land and 7 square miles is water. The population is 2,214 as of the 2000 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.
The first European settlers made their home in the area near the hamlet of Fish House located on what would become the northeast shore of the Great Sacandaga Lake around 1787. By the 1790's settlement had spread to the western shores of the Sacandaga River near Beecher's Hollow and in the early 1800's near Batchellerville.
On March 13, 1801 the residents created the town of Northfield from the Town of Providence. In 1808 it was discovered that there already was a town called Northfield in New York State. Therefore the name was changed to Edinburgh after the city in Scotland. Later the name was shortened to Edinburg
Logging, farming, and woodenware manufacturing were the main industries. Woodware factories produced clothespins, broom handles, barrel staves and washboards.
