History
The area was first settled around 1794 by Ezra Turner, who settled near the Salmon River, and built the first sawmill in 1801.

The town was formed from the town of Plattsburgh in 1848.

Geography
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town of Schuyler Falls has a total area of 36.8 square miles (95.4 km2), of which 36.5 square miles (94.6 km2) is land and 0.31 square miles (0.8 km2), or 0.82%, is water.[1]

The Saranac River forms the north town line, with the town of Plattsburgh on the opposite shore. The Salmon River runs through the southern part of the town, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the border with the town of Peru. Both rivers flow east into Lake Champlain.

New York State Route 22B is a north-south highway in the town, beginning east-west in the hamlet of Morrisonville.
