Halfmoon history:

The first settlements were in place in the late 1600ís near the Mohawk River. It 1788, the town was formed as part of Albany County. The name was changed to Orange in 1816 when Waterford was created from Halfmoon. The original name of Halfmoon was returned in 1820. Clifton Park was created out of western Halfmoon in 1828. Mechanicsville separated in 1859 to form its own village.

Mostly farmland in earlier years, the areas of Clifton Park and Halfmooncame into their own during the 1950's when Route I-87, also known as the "Northway," was constructed. This highway allowed easy commutes to Albany and other larger cities nearby. Susan B. Anthony spent summers at her relative's farm and spice mill on Farm to Market Road.
