The Town of Guilderland
Originally the town of Guilderland was a pioneer settlement dating back to the 1700s. It was incorporated in 1803. During the late 1700s and early 1800s there was a diverse economy in Guilderland. In the area called French’s Hollow, there were many companies including a glass manufacturer, clothing and button factories, and grist mill. French’s Hollow, named for the owner of the knitting mill, is also located in Guilderland. After success for over 50 years, these industries closed when the railroad came to the area and changed the way products could be transported to other locations and changed the demand in local marketplace.
Today, French’s Hollow is a popular fishing, swimming and picnic site. There are still remainders of the covered bridge over the Normanskill River that was used from 1869 to 1933.
The Prospect Hill Cemetery overlooks the town of Guilderland and pays tribute to the soldiers and historians who played an important role in both Guilderland’s past and American history. Grave markers for soldiers have iron markers with GAR on them (Grand Army of the Republic, The Army of the Civil War). Notable civilian residents of Guilderland are also buried in the cemetery which was established in 1854. Visitors can explore Guilderland’s history in the cemetery and residents can trace their family ancestry there.
History lovers can learn more about Guilderland when visiting the Mynderse-Frederick House on Main Street. Mynderse was an affluent merchant and the first town supervisor in Guilderland; the house was built in 1802. In the 1820s Michael Frederick brought the house and turned it into a tavern which remained open until the house was turned into their private home in 1917 and they closed the tavern. The architectural style of the house is an impressive Greek and Federal Revival style. Currently, the Mynderse-Frederick House is a museum and home to several organizations that have offices in the House. Public tours are available.
Today, The Appel Inn is a popular venue for weddings and special events. The Inn was built in 1765 by Hendrick Appel and was both a tavern and a rooming house for those passing through Guilderland. The town government was established after a meeting at the Appel Inn in 1803. When Appel owned the Inn, he was known for his famous beverage, the Apple Toddy.
