Hoosick Falls is an area steeped in rich history from the times of the American Revolution on through today. Our town and the surrounding area boast to being the home of the Bennington Battlefield and many other astounding places. Tourists can enjoy the many historic aspects of our town alongside our locals while attending weekly community band concerts in the park, farmers markets in the armory, or even the local McDonalds which always seems to have a ton of people inside. Hoosick Falls is a football town. We take extreme pride in all of our sports teams, but football has always been out number one. People from far and wide come to watch our panthers score time and time again. The previous year our homecoming football game (my homecoming football game) was disastrously cancelled. It was truly surprising that there was not a riot in the streets. Hoosick Falls lives in breathes football and history, but it's a genuinely nice place to live and grow up. We are in a decent area as far as travel goes as we are close to Albany and driving to nearby states is no problem really.

Hoosick Falls is a community. We have a strong sense of pride in our sports teams which bring crowds from far and wide. We hold numerous community fundraisers and often can be found holding bed races down the street. People tend to life here their entire lives and never leave. The area is perfect for raising a family or having pets as long as you are responsible and do not live in the center of town. There is no nightlife here, but Hoosick Falls confines to grow everyday.
There are not many food options in Hoosick Falls. We have numerous pizza places, a Chinese restaurant, and the occasional new restaurant that inevitably fails or burns down.
