Crailo State Historic Site


With campaigns heading both north and west from Albany throughout the French & Indian War, British planners frequently made use of Crailo’s ideal location. A 1500-acre estate in Green Bush on the east bank of the Hudson River opposite the city of Albany, Crailo (Dutch for “crows’ wood”) not only could accommodate large numbers of provincial soldiers, but it could easily be reached by units arriving by boat from the south or by foot from any of the nearby New England colonies.
