Russia Corners Historic District
The Russia Corners Historic District is in the south-center part of the Town of Russia in upstate New York State, in the Northeast region of the United States.
Military Road, which runs through Russia Corners from southeast to northwest (the dashed red line on the map above), was utilized by soldiers (of both sides) during the Revolutionary War (1775–1783), and during the War of 1812 (1812–1815)—as can be read about in this livingplaces.com article.
If you click on marker “5”—or its associated button, “M5”—you will see the approximate boundary-line of the Russia Corners Historic District (the dashed orange line on the Google map), as well as the six main structures within the Historic District (that are circled in white on the Google map): the Russia Union Church (pointed to by marker “5”); the District No. 5 School (next door to the church, on its east side); three private residences (across the street from the church); and a fourth residence (to the west of the church, on the other side of Church Road).
The fourth residence was once a tavern and store, and served as a brief hiatus for the many soldiers who camped in the area during the latter conflict.
The naming of the Town of Russia is discussed in this townofrussia.com article.
