"Visit South Glens Falls: Once Home to "The Last of the Mohicans""

South Glens Falls, a lovely village in Saratoga County, is most widely know as the site of Cooper's Cave, which is named as such because it inspired James Fenimore Cooper to write “Last of the Mohicans”. Part of northern town Moreau and south of Glens Falls of Warren County, NY, South Glens Falls is home to many museums and within easy reach of the rest of historic Saratoga County, location of many Revolutionary War battles and historical moments. The school system is pretty good, containing four different elementary schools, one middle school (Oliver W. Winch Middle School) and one high school (South Glens Falls High School which has 251 students and an 81.3% graduation rate).

As far as things to do around town, this place is great for those who wish to learn about Saratoga's history. There's lots of museums to choose from, such as the Chapman Historical Museum (dedicated to teaching the history of Glens Falls, as well as Queensbury and including the Southern Adirondacks, which are close by). This museum has unique events such as the Annual Glens Falls Cemetery Tour (starting September 29) and shifting exhibits. Other museums include the Bolton Historical Museum and Fort William Henry Historical Museum (Fort William itself is right nearby and the infamous Saratoga Battlefield as well as Fort Ticonderoga). You can take your sailboat, canoe, kayak or rowboat out on beautiful Lake George and Lake Champlain, or hike the gorgeous West and Gore Mountains. (This area is known as the “Gateway to the Adirondacks” and within good reason!)

In town, you're never out of reach from great eats such as the Dango's Dugout (an American Restaurant, reputedly has fantastic wings), the Iron Pig BBQ, (get the famed Pulled Pork Sandwhich, a customer favorite from all over Saratoga County), Abbot's Restaurant (American, fair), China Buffet, Subway, 3 pizza places (Giavano's Pizzeria, House of Pizza, and Gino's Pizzeria South), McDonald's, and Massie's Restaurant (mixed reviews; also a Banquet Hall). Stores include Rite Aid, Racing City Hobbies, a Dollar Tree savings store, South Glens Falls Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy, as well as your awesome treat and coffee stop (the neighborhood Dunkin' Donuts) and more! You can stay at The Glens Falls In or Manor Inn (or the Country Kitty B&B in nearby Queensbury). Glens Falls is very affordable at $130,950, and is right near the glorious, stunningly beautiful parks of the Adirondack Mountains. You also are right near have even more fun in neighboring tonws such as vibrant Saratoga Springs, and right in South Glens Falls itself, you access to the well reputed Glens Falls Hospital for outstanding medical care. The crime rate of South Glens Falls is not unlike those of cities, with a comparison of 2.56 to the NY state average of 3.92, and 25 out of 100 (where 100 is the safest).

South Glens Falls of the greater town of Moreau is rich in history, has great schools and is a beautiful place to live, within reach of many fun things to do, great places to eat, convenient amenities, and more!
