Berkshire Style - In and Around The Berkshires, An Online Resource



Ancram is a town in eastern Columbia County, NY. Originally part of the Land Grant to the Livingston family in the eighteenth century. the Livingston forge created metal products for the community. As the Revolution drew near, the factory produced shot, cannonballs, and perhaps most importantly, the chain which stretched across the Hudson River at West Point. In 1814 the town was established and its name was changed to Ancram. Hamlets include Ancram, Ancramdale and Boston Corner.
