Starin Mausoleum in Fultonville Cemetery - 1907-1915
The first white settlement on the site was made around 1750 by John Evart Van Epps, and was called "Van Epps Swamp" due to the swampland by the river. During the American Revolution, the homes that were located here were burned.
The village was founded around 1824 in anticipation of the opening of the Erie Canal, and the West Shore Railroad ran through Fultonville, and had a station there as of 1889. The West Shore was later absorbed into the New York Central system. Fultonville was incorporated as a village on August 9, 1848.

Cobblestone Hall and Free Library
Cobblestone Hall and Free Library was built sometime before 1868 when the house belonged to C. B. Freeman. Freeman was the proprietor of Fultonville Steam Mills. He lived at this residence until at least 1878 when F. W. Beers published a history of Montgomery and Fulton Counties. By 1905, a large wooden addition had been made to the rear of the building which was then called "Cobblestone Free Hall and Library." The building still stands, minus the addition, and is a private residence.
