Visit the New Baltimore Historic District

Nestled in the New Baltimore Hamlet Historic District, NBC boasts an architectural and historic masterpiece. The hamlet and surrounding trails serve as one of the rare, intact examples of a Hudson River hamlet, retaining significant streetscapes, buildings, charm, and natural resources stemming from the 1790s to the 1940s.

Connect with Nature

Visit the Hudson River Interpretive Trail, Hannacroix Creek Preserve, or Long View Park to enjoy hundreds of acres of open space and Hudson River estuaries. Enjoy a hike up to the Hannacroix Falls, cross a tidal pond on the World’s First Recycled Bridge, walk along the shores of the Hudson River, or take a stroll on a historic farmstead.

Chris Leide, a New Baltimore musician, cinematographer, and Conservancy member, is combining his talents with the pleasures of kayaking to produce several videos exclusively featuring local scenes of the Hudson River and tributaries. Check out his video entitled “Hit the Target,” a point-of-view kayak adventure along the Hannacroix Creek, under the world’s first recycled plastic bridge in HRIT, and into the tidal estuary beyond.

Become Part of a Community

The NBC prides itself in creating a strong sense of community. Through our built community we are able to not only promote our conservation efforts, but support one another. Join us at our social events like the Taste of History, Wine and Cheese, Barn Party, and more; engage in our monthly meetings; or explore the great outdoors all while connecting with friends and neighbors.

What People Say

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Went on a weekday afternoon with my (HS and college-aged) kids. It was great to get away from the stress of COVID and enjoy nature. Went up to the creek/falls first and had a great time exploring the area, though we couldn’t figure out where one would swim, so much as wade. We ended our trip by going down the Hudson River Trail and seeing that body of water from a lovely and secluded spot. I can’t believe I’ve lived in the area for years and never knew about this little gem was simply incredible. They took care of everything, even our packing list!
