|Comments||The Town of Schodack Justice Court is located in the Schodack Town Hall in Castleton. Directions to the Court may be found on their website, or you can click our map link. Court gets a bit crowded but the judges remain pleasant.
Some may be surprised, but Schodack is the busiest town or village court in Rensselaer County. Must be all the I-90 speeding tickets.
|About the area||The name Schodack is a corruption of the Indian name Esquatak, which means "the fireplace of the nation," because the council-seat of the Mohican Indians was located here. The Dutch settled here in 1609, shortly after Henry Hudson discovered the area.
