Latham Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 8 photos

This is a large residential community that is part of the Colonie suburb of Albany. My niece-in-law used to live here and presently has a job in the education department. There are about 5000 people living and working in the area.

official website is included in the Colonie website:

ZIPCODE 12110, 12189 is Latham in Colonie township in the city of Albany in Albany County
042-44-49N 073-45-32W

Area Code 518

interesting facts

there are a lot of creeks and streams in the area. The waterways east of Loudon Road drain into the Hudson River; the rest drain into the Mohawk River.

Old Loudon Road was built during the French and Indian War to get troops from Albany area up to Lake George area.

original town name was VanVrankens Corners (at corner of route 2 and Old Loudon Road); later was changed to Latham for the name of the hotel owner at the corner (William Latham)
