Just outside of the city of Hudson, Claverack retains an 18th century Main Street with manor homes built by founding families, but the countryside quickly becomes agrarian with an expanse of apple orchards and other farms.
Originally part of the Van Rensselaer tract granted in 1630, Claverack was settled by the Dutch and Palatine (German) descendants of the original tract founders and workers. This history is evident in the array of older homes on the main street of the village.
The quaint village streets give way to rolling apple orchards, and other farms that enjoy the fertile soils of Claverack. Bisected by the Claverack Creek, a class A trout stream, the landscape reveals spectacular Catskill Mountain views from many vantage points.
