Peebles Island State Park is located in the city of Cohoes (Albany County) and the village of Waterford (Saratoga County). Surrounded by the third and fourth branches of the Mohawk River, this 191-acre park includes Polrump, Goat, and Peebles Islands as well as the northern portion of Van Schaick Island.
New York State purchased Peebles Island in 1973 for use as a park. The Matton Shipyard on Van Schaick Island was added to the property in 1989. The brick factory complex dates from 1910, when Cluett, Peabody & Company, once the largest shirt manufacturer in the world, began construction of its bleachery. For more information on the bleachery complex, visit the interpretive sign at the entrance to the Peebles Island Resource Center.
