Walloomsac River

The Walloomsac River watershed is made up of the lands draining into the Walloomsac River and its tributaries, including Little White Creek. The Walloomsac joins the Hoosic River in North Hoosick, and the watershed extends into Washington County and Vermont. 

Along the Walloomsac in this northeast corner of Rensselaer County is the Bennington Battlefield State Historic Site, location of not only a historic battle but also of New York State's largest spotted hawthorn tree, 20 feet tall and more than 200 years old.
