Large building with a great view of the Historic Stockade Area and Mohawk River.
Brick mid rise apartment complex located in the most sought after area of Schenectady. The Stockade Historic District is one of the oldest and best preserved neighborhoods in the United States, with roots dating back to a 17th century Dutch colonial trading settlement. This is a turn key property with a tremendous growth potential.
A neighborhood of private homes, apartments and professional offices, the Stockade is the historic center of Schenectady. Restored in the 1950' s and 60' s, the Stockade was recognized as New York State' s first historic district. It is the most heavily populated area of the city and lies just to the north of downtown adjacent to the Mohawk River.
The Stockade Historic District is the oldest residential neighborhood in the country. It is home to what the National Parks Service called "the highest concentration of historic period homes in the country," with over 40 homes over 200 years old. It is the first Historic District established in New York.
Settled in 1661 by a group of enterprising Dutch merchants and fur-traders, the settlement flourished until 1690 when a party of marauders burnt the stockaded village to the ground, massacred most of its inhabitants and marched 27 prisoners back to Quebec. Native Mohawks, including "Lawrence the Indian," encouraged the hearty Dutch to resettle; by 1692, the Stockade area was once again a flourishing fur-trading outpost and a thriving industrial and commercial center marked by sturdy homes of local merchants, laborers and farmers of Dutch, English, and Scots heritage.
The Stockade saw one of the first calls for liberty in 1765 and was the area's center for the Committees on Safety. During the revolution the Stockade became a crucial link in the line of supplies for the Revolutionary effort providing provisions, bateaux and arms to the continental army. George Washington visited several times during and after the Revolutionary War.
Very close to General Electric, Rivers Casino, restaurants and schools.
