Godfrey Shew Original Home Site

Original Shew HouseThis marker designates one of the early settler’s homes, in the Town of Northampton. There have been amazing stories of Godfrey’s sons and their exploits during our fight for independence. The old Sacandaga River was a main artery from the east to the Hudson and the Champlain Corridor and many raids into the Mohawk Valley used this route through this river system and traveled by canoe. Those living along it were isolated and vulnerable to these raiding parties. Mr. Donald Sawyer wrote a wonderful book on the Shew Family titled, “They came to Sacandaga”.

Location: This marker is located on the north side of Route 110, in the Hamlet of Fish House at the Saratoga County boundary line.
