Fultonville is a village in Montgomery County, New York, United States. The population was 710 at the 2000 census. The village is named after Robert Fulton, inventor of the steamboat.

The Village of Fultonville is on the south bank of the Mohawk River in the Town of Glen. It is west of Amsterdam, NY.

History

The first settlement on the site was made around 1750, and was called "Van Epps Swamp" due to the swampland by the river. Homes located here were burned during the American Revolution.

The village was founded around 1824 in anticipation of the opening of the Erie Canal.

Fultonville was incorporated as a village August 09, 1848. The original board of Trustees was as follows:

Howland Fish - President
Andrew J Yates
William B Wemple
Thomas R Horton
Delancey D Starin
At the time of incorporation, the village's population numbered 630. In 1875 the population had increased to 1220.

Cobblestone Free Hall and Library

Cobblestone Free Hall and Library was built sometime before 1868 when it was the house of C.B. Freeman. Freeman was proprietor of Fultonville Steam Mills. He lived at this residence until at least 1878 when F.W. Beers published a history of Montgomery and Fulton Counties. By 1905, a large wooden addition had been made to the rear of the building and was then called "Cobblestone Free Hall and Library." The building still stands, minus the addition, and is a private residence.
