Starks Knob

STARK'S KNOB SCIENTIFIC RESERVATION

Stark's Knob is one of two scientific reservations under the management of the New York State Museum.

Here, at Stark's Knob, we find a wonderful combination of natural and cultural significance, for not only is the geological formation one of international interest, being a feature of volcanic origins unique in New York State, but the site is also a key feature in the final defeat of the British Army at the Battles of Saratoga in 1777, an event of profound international importance.

This website is dedicated to all aspects of the history of Stark's Knob - cultural and natural - and to the many people whose efforts over the coming years will bring this site back to the world-class status and widespread public access it once enjoyed.
