Welcome to Nelsonville

Incorporated in 1855, Nelsonville is a Hudson Highlands village located in the Town of Philipstown in Putnam County, New York. Its Government consists of a mayor and four trustees as its legislative body, and a Village clerk who doubles as treasurer. 


We're happy you're here! Please take a look around and explore the history of our small village, along with what's going on in Nelsonville today. 


CCA Update

Nelsonville is participating in the launch of the Hudson Valley Community Power program, which will provide an additional choice in electricity supply sourcing. You should have received a letter in the mail outlining our selected default electricity supply option and your choices. Please consider your options.


Our selected default choice will be set for a 2-year fixed term at 50% NYS based renewable and 50% non-NYS based renewable energy sourcing. This means it is still 100% renewable, but only 50% is sourced from NYS based supply.
