What’s So Special About Scotia? The Way The Past & Present Are Connected!

Residents of Scotia work hard to honor their past, while creating a comfortable quality of life in today’s day and age. This philosophy is evident throughout the community. The land now known as Scotia was purchased from the Mohawk Indians in the 1600s by Alexander Lindsay Glen, who was originally from Scotland. That’s why he named the area Scotia, which is Latin for Scotland. In 1658 Glen built the first house in the area on the north side of the River and called it “Nova Scotia”, which translated to “New Scotland”. The mansion served as the family estate for six generations. In 1739, Glen’s great granddaughter Debra Glen, and her new husband John Sanders, renamed the mansion the Glen-Sanders Mansion. Until 1961, the home remained in the Glen family.

Today, the Glen-Sanders Mansion was been restored and is privately owned. The mansion is recognized as a one of the area’s leading hospitality centers. The Mansion features a luxury Inn for overnight guests, an award winning restaurant, indoor and outdoor facilities for private parties and corporate events, a picturesque wedding venue, and impeccably maintained grounds with view of the gardens and Mohawk River. The staff of the Mansion is too polite to chuckle when tourists ask, “Who was Glen Sanders?” However, they are eager to share the true history of the Glen-Sanders Mansion and how it evolved to the elegant modern facility it is today.

The Post Office located in the center of Scotia also pays tribute to the Glen family. It was built in the late 1930s in the Colonial Revival style of architecture. In 1941 noted artist of the time, Amy Jones, painted a large detailed mural on the post office wall as a tribute to the Glen family’s survival during the Schenectady Massacre of 1690. The post office is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is still in operation today.

There are many other places of historical significance in Scotia. Visitors enjoy seeing the homes of famous residents with their unique and diverse architecture dating back to the 1700s. Churches also played a significant role in Scotia’s history and they continue to do so today. The First Baptist Church dates back to 1872, and the Scotia Reformed Church was founded in 1818. The Park Cemetery with Scotia’s families dates back hundreds of years.

Freedom Park plays a role in Scotia’s more recent history. In 1976 an amphitheater and dock were built along the banks of the Mohawk River on a former dump site as part of the United States Bicentennial Celebrations. Freedom Park, as it came to be known, proved to be such a spectacular venue, more concerts and programs were added and over the years Freedom Park has been a popular destination to bring the community together.
