The Swart Tavern, Scotia, NY

Swart Tavern

In 1653, Josias Swart was born. The trustees of Schenectady gave him a deed for land in 1713. A brick home was built on the land in 1792. It was about 4 miles from Scotia and along the river.

The Swart Tavern became a place where stagecoach travelers stopped to rest and eat on their way from Schenectady to Utica. Over the years, many people owned the tavern, and now people live in it.

Mr. Stanley A. Lee, current owner.
