Facts about Fort Hunter
Fort Hunter is also known as: Fort Hunter.
Fort Hunter is a hamlet in the Town of Florida in Montgomery County, New York, west of the capital at Albany, on the south bank of the Mohawk River and on the northeast bank of Schoharie Creek. It developed around a fort of the same name, built by English colonists in 1712 near the Mohawk village of Teantontalago for their defense. Queen Anne ordered the fort built at the request of the Mohawk, in exchange for their allowing her to settle Palatine Germans in their territory. The English called the Mohawk settlement the Lower Mohawk Castle. Within a few years, the fort included an Anglican chapel, first built in logs and replaced by a stone church in 1741. It was a mission church for the Mohawk in addition to English settlers. The fort survived the wars in the region; it was taken down in 1820 to make way for construction of the Erie Canal.
