About Scotia

In the heart of upstate New York, nestled along the banks of the Mohawk River, lies the quaint town of Scotia. With a rich history dating back to the early 17th century, Scotia exudes a charming blend of old-world charm and modern vitality.

The town’s cobblestone streets tell tales of Scottish immigrants who settled here, naming the town in homage to their homeland. Scotia’s landscape is adorned with historic buildings, each whispering stories of bygone

eras. The iconic Freedom Park, with its lush greenery and scenic waterfront, is a favorite gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. Here, laughter echoes during summer concerts, and the gentle hum of camaraderie fills the air.

Scotia’s community thrives on its close-knit spirit, evident in the bustling Farmer’s Market where neighbors exchange smiles and fresh produce. The Glen Sanders Mansion, a majestic colonial-era structure turned restaurant, stands as a testament to the town’s enduring elegance.

As the seasons change, Scotia transforms into a canvas painted with autumnal hues, drawing nature enthusiasts to Indian Meadows Park. Winter brings a serene beauty to Collins Lake, where ice skaters carve graceful patterns on the frozen surface.

Scotia, with its timeless allure, is more than a town; it’s a living anthology of a community bound by history, warmth, and the ever-flowing Mohawk River.
