The area was the location of several military forts, built from 1690 to 1777. The first was constructed during King William's War and the last during the American Revolution. Two early forts were called "Fort Schuyler" and the "Queen's Fort." Also Fort Ann was the site of the 1777 Battle of Fort Anne during the Saratoga Campaign.

The village was incorporated in 1820. The Champlain Canal, completed in 1823, passes through the village. Later, the Delaware & Hudson Railroad came.

Old Stone House Library was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
