This week on The Historians Podcast, Colonie town historian Kevin Franklin explains the historic importance of Schuyler Flatts, now a town park between Menands and Watervliet near the Hudson River.
The land previously was a home of the prominent Schuyler family and an early residence of Arent Van Curler, the founder of Schenectady.
