History

Taken on by the City of Saratoga Spring, the official seal of the town represents a Mohawk family and is based on John Ehninger’s illustration. The picture commemorates High Rock, as well as the Native Americans who took Sir William Johnson in 1771 to the “great medicine spring”. A number of pioneers made an effort to settle in High Rock Spring in the 1770s, which include Gilbert Morgan, Samuel Norton and his son, and John Arnold. Gen. Philip Schuyler cut a trail through the wilds in 1783 from his Old Saratoga home by the Hudson River to High Rock Spring and constructed a cabin.

Gen. George Washington made a trip to High Rock Spring in 1783 while he was on a northern expedition along with his group and drank the waters prior to carrying on their trip southward. Regarded as the early permanent resident in 1787 at the springs, Alexander Bryan create  d a blacksmith shop, plus an extra log building where a tavern was opened. The region all over High Rock Springs kept on developing as the Taylors, Blakeslys and Risleys stayed and put up businesses in a place that is known as Upper Village.

Saratoga Springs was separated in 1819 from the Town of Saratoga and was incorporated as a village in the year 1826. The Town Hall, designed by Cummings & Burt Associates, was opened to everyone on December 28, 1871. Lions have been added upon the completion of the buildings, and in the year 1915, the Town and Village of Saratoga Springs had been incorporated to develop the City of Saratoga Springs.
