Warren County, New York

Warren County is a county in the U.S. state of New York. As of the 2010 census, the population was 65,707.[1] The county seat is Queensbury.[2] The county is named in honor of General Joseph Warren, an American Revolutionary War hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill.[3]

When counties were established in the Province of New York in 1683, the present Warren County was part of Albany County. The county was enormous, covering the northern part of New York State, all of the present State of Vermont, and, in theory, extended westward to the Pacific Ocean. It was reduced in size on July 3, 1766 by the creation of Cumberland County, and further on March 16, 1770 by the creation of Gloucester County, both containing territory now in Vermont. On March 12, 1772, what was left of Albany County was split into three parts, one remaining under the name Albany County. One of the other pieces, Charlotte County (named for Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, queen-consort of King George the Third of England), contained the eastern portion.
