Canajoharie is a thriving business town, incorporated 30th April, 1829. A bridge across the Mohawk River connects it with Palatine Bridge and the N.Y.C.&H.R. Railroad, 55 miles from Albany, and 93 from Syracuse. It is located in the midst of a rich grazing district, and within a radius of a few miles are 26 cheese factories, which market their productions here. Hops are also a leading staple of this region. It has a population of about 2500, a weekly newspaper, two National Banks, several stores, five churches, and the Nellis House is the principal hotel. It also contains the largest paper and cotton flour sack manufactory in the U.S. The work is mostly done by machinery peculiar to this business and quite novel in its character. The daily consumption of paper (made of rope) is from five to six tons per day. The power is furnished by the Canajoharie Creek, which flows through a ravine of rare beauty and grandeur of scenery. The Erie canal flows through the town. Passengers take the stage from here to Sharon Springs a distance of about eight miles. Webster Wagner, Esq., the proprietor of the Palace Railroad cars resides at Palatine Bridge.
