Town of Hounsfield

Olympic Byway, in Jefferson County

Sackets Harbor on Lake Ontario is in the Town of Hounsfield.

Sackets Harbor was founded in 1801 by Augustus Sacket as part of Jefferson County and incorporated into the Town of Hounsfield as a strategic point of entry for shipping and military defense along the Canadian Border. Military troops were first stationed at Sackets Harbor in 1808 to stop smuggling into Canada. Due to its strategic location as a military installation in the northern frontier, the Navy located its headquarters in the village during the War of 1812 and strengthened the installation with construction of a permanent training post that existed until 1945.
