Regarding Hadley Station. In 1871, a sixty mile railroad line was completed from Saratoga Springs to North Creek,
The rail line began in 1863 as the Adirondack Company, incorporated under Dr. Thomas C. Durant, a leading figure in the Union Pacific Railroad. In 1881 the mortgage was foreclosed on the property, and the line was sold to his son, William West Durant, and then renamed The Adirondack Railway Company. On November 5th in 1902 it merged with the Delaware and Hudson Railroad to become the Adirondack Branch.
The railroad station in Hadley was built in 1870 as a combination passenger and freight station and was the largest one of on the line, and measured 20'x96'. In 1957, the NYS Public Service Commission granted permission to suspend passenger service to the Hadley depot. It closed on August 5th, 1958. It was sold and removed probably in 1959 and the property was sold to Joseph White who used the spot to park trucks for his lumbering business.
