Halfmoon was once a busy mill town on the Champlain Canal.

One of the community's early business leaders was Joshua Anthony, a cousin of suffragist Susan B. Anthony. He built a factory that made baking powder and food flavorings, was instrumental in getting a post office and railroad station for the area, and erected a private telegraph line linking local communities and his factory.
