|Corinth's name, selected from the Bible, was chosen when the township was first incorporated in 1818. Situated perfectly to benefit from the surrounding natural resources, Corinth has a long history as a mill town, processing timber, wool, and grains using the power of the Hudson River. Located at the northern edge of Saratoga County, Corinth has been both a rural agricultural community and an industrial center. It is home to several churches, community organizations, and businesses, as well as one of International Paper's largest mills, which used the Hudson for both transportation and energy generation. Within Corinth, readers will discover the area's past through images of mill workers, schoolchildren, farmers, shopkeepers, and other residents, as well as the homes and businesses they built.
Rachel A. Clothier is the town historian and a longtime resident of Corinth. Dedicated to the preservation of Corinth's history for the benefit of future generations, she has been curator of the town's museum since 1981 and authored numerous articles on local history. It is her desire that Corinth be a resource for both residents and visitors who wish to learn more about the area's picturesque past.
