Duanesburg and Princetown depicts the two westernmost hill towns of Schenectady County. Settlers arrived in the region in the mid-1700s, and eventually hamlets grew up where they clustered: Quaker Street, Delanson, Mariaville,Eaton's Corners, Braman's Corners, Duanesburg Four Corners, Rynex Corners, Gifford's, Princetown Hamlet, and Kelly's Station. Images from these hamlets provide glimpses of more than two centuries of American endeavor, including early styles of architecture and the largest coaling station in the world in 1907, natural sites of extraordinary beauty and interest, and a progression of religious, social, political,and economic activity.
