Welcome to Claverack


Whether you are a resident, a visitor or considering becoming either, we are glad you are here.

The Town of Claverack, incorporated in 1788, sits in the middle of beautiful Columbia County, with easy access to Albany, Boston and New York City. There are just over 6000 residents spread out over almost 50 miles of the town, which makes us the second most populated township in the County. Included in the township of Claverack is the Village of Philmont, which has its own municipal structure ( and was incorporated in 1892. We are proud of our rural, academic and industrial history and cherish the small town and rural atmosphere that is fundamental to our community.

In 2008 Claverack completed a Comprehensive Plan (download here) which identifies the vision and goals for the township that are actively being pursued. It is a living document that honors what we most treasure and clarifies where our opportunities are. One of the recommended strategies was to enhance and promote the town website and we hope we have met this objective. We hope that you find this website welcoming, easy to use, and that it gives you the information you are searching for.
