More About Galway, NY
The town of Galway is located on the western side of Saratoga County, north of Schenectady, NY, with its western border touching Fulton County. Within the town there is also a Village of Galway.
Around 1774, several families from Scotland formed a settlement in the area and called it New Galloway, after Galloway, Scotland. The settlers abadoned the area around the time of the Revolutionary war. After the war, a few families returned, built houses, opened a store, built roads, and futher settled the area.
Legend has it that when the act creating the town was passed, an error made by an Irish Clerk in the Town of Balls-Town (now Town of Ballston) spelled the name Galway, probably in reference to Galway, Ireland. The new spelling of the town’s name stuck but it is still pronounced the Scottish way.
New York State Route 29 runs east-west through the northern part of Galway.
The Mead House in Galway is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
