The first settlers came in 1802. The Township is located in the Southeast corner of St. Law. Co., in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. It has an elevation of 1,273 feet. On the East side it borders Franklin County and on the south side it borders Piercefield. This last section of the township use to be referred to as the "south woods".
Most of the homes in the villages of Hopkinton and Ft. Jackson were built in the 1800’s. Many have sandstone foundations. Both yellow and red sandstone were mined in one of the four Hopkinton’s sandstone quarries. In 2010 the quarry with red sandstone has begun limited mining again.
