Industrial GrowthThe natural features of the Hudson River, especially its falls, are largely responsible for the region's industrial development. In 1765, Albert Baker settled along this part of the river and created the area's first water-powered mill. Iron foundries, a blast furnace. And several paper, saw, and grist mills were established along the river in the mid 1800-s. The construction of the Champlain Canal in 1823 and the Glen Falls Feeder Canal in 1833 allowed materials to be shipped in and out of the region with ease.
