Kinderhook is the name of both a village and a township in Columbia County in the state of New York.

The main square in downtown Kinderhook. The red brick building is the National Union Bank of Kinderhook.


The village of Kinderhook lies within the township of the same name. The village of Kinderhook is essentially a pretty town in a very rural area of New York State. Its center is small and well worth looking at, and some very nice private houses extend for some way to the south on Route 9, blending without a break into the village of Stuyvesant.
