Welcome to the official website of the Town of Taghkanic, New York

Thanks to everyone who has taken the poll about whether the town should have a Local Board of Ethics or use the Columbia County Board of Ethics. If you haven’t done this yet, please take a minute to take the poll now  … thank you!


Thanks to Sam Pratt for sharing information about a free Library of Congress scan of an 1858 Columbia County map.
