Town of Saugerties

Town of Saugerties

Saugerties is at the foot of the Catskill Mountains on the West bank of the Hudson River, 100 miles North of New York City. The name Saugerties takes its derivation from the Holland Dutch, Zager’s Killetje. Zager (meaning sawyer or sawmill), and Kill meaning creek or stream, with the suffix “t j e” to indicate small or little (now modernized as “t i e s”). Thus the sawmill on the ‘Zager’s Killetje, or Little Kill, became Saugerties, leaving us with a direct link to our early Dutch heritage.
