The Rise and Fall of Ballston Spa as a Resort

Zoom presentation, 7 p.m. The Saratoga County History Center (SCHC) at Brookside Museum announces a virtual presentation by Theodore Corbett for the “Experts Next Door” series. After the Revolutionary War, the new nation’s earliest resorts were spas, following the tradition of those in England. Ballston Spa was one of the earliest and soon eclipsed its rivals in terms of springs, hotels, and amenities. New York City’s Nicholas Low was the most enterprising of the Spa’s developers. By the 1830s, however, Saratoga Springs’ resort had surpassed Ballston Spa, which continued, using its waterpower and railroad to establish the mills of the Industrial Revolution. The event is open to the public. It is free for SCHC members, and $5 for non-members. Pre-registration is required through the website www.brooksidemuseum.org.
