Leyden

 

Leyden contains about 700 year round residents and famous sons that include John Riddell who was the inventor of the binocular microscope, and Henry Kirke Brown who was the sculptor of George Washington on horseback at Union Square in New York City.

Leyden had several small industries in the eighteenth century, including grist mills, wood product mills, and dairying, but today the largest industry is maple sugar production. The town also has a reservoir which supplies the town of Greenfield.

Leyden is a beautiful part of Franklin County with rolling hills, open farmland and picturesque views.
