Honor Roll: Bay and Glen Streets, Glens Falls, New York

The City of Glens Falls is in Warren County, New York. It sits on a fall line in the Hudson River and was known as Chepontuc, Iroquois for difficult place to get around. It was the site of battles during the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. There are several stories regarding how the city got its name. Some believe the hamlet was transferred to Col. Johannes Glen in 1788 either on collection of a debt, as a result of a card game, or in exchange for hosting a party for mutual friends.

At the intersection of Glen Street (U.S. Rt. 9) and Bay Street, is an honor roll memorial commemorating the citizens of the Town of Queensbury who lost their lives in the Civil War. (Glens Falls used to be within the boundaries of the Town of Queensbury until it was granted a city charter in 1908.)
