The small town of Minerva was name after the Goddess of Wisdom and lies in Essex County.  It was first settled in 1804 from parts of Schroon and Newcomb.  History tells us that Winslow Homer visited in Minerva on summers, and Solomon Northup (a freed African American, who wrote his book and adapted for PBS TV in "Gordon Park's") was born and attended local schools in Minerva.  Minerva has hamlets of Boreas River, Irishtown, Loch Muller, Moose Pond Club, Northwood Club, Olmstedville, Leonardsville, Pudding Hollow and Stillwater.  Minerva hosts many lakes and Ponds (Minerva Lake, Moose Pond, Mink Lake, Hewitt Pond, Chain Lakes, Lake Balfour, and 15 miles of Boreas River and Hudson River).
