The official website of the Village of Hoosick Falls, NY—the Grandma Moses Discovery Village. Located on the Hoosic River, among the bucolic foothills of the Green Mountains in the town of Hoosick, in northeast corner of New York's Rensselaer County. Home of the historic Walter A. Wood Mowing and Reaping Machinery Company—once the largest company of its kind in the world. The former factory town is now a picturesque quaint village with scenery that still inspires artists like it did with Grandma Moses in years past.

The Hoosick Falls Water Treatment plant has been honored by the New York Rural Water Association as Rural Water Treatment Plant of The Year. Congratulations to Jim Hurlburt and the staff at the plant for a job well done!

Great Taste!
Hoosick Falls' water has been named the best tasting water in Rensselaer County once again. Our water has also done well enough in regional competitions to make it to the finals at the New York State Fair. We'll toast to that!

Solar and Water
The water treatment plant is the first of the Village's municipal buildings to have fully-operational solar energy panels installed. The plant has a 45 kilowatt system that will generate the majority of their power needs.
