Loudonville is a hamlet in the town of Colonie,[1][2] in Albany County, New York, United States. Loudonville was a census-designated place in the 1970, 1980, and 1990 US Census, but ceased to be in the 2000 Census, but became a CDP again in 2020.[3]


The hamlet is named after John Campbell, 4th Earl of Loudoun and was originally a 19th-century summer resort for some of Albany's wealthiest residents.[6] Loudon Road, known as Old Plank Road in the early 19th century,[7] is lined with several historic Jeffersonian mansions.[8] Loudonville started as a hamlet on Loudon Road (originally a plank road), at the intersection of Crumitie Road.[9] Ireland's Corners was a separate hamlet to the north at the intersection of Loudon Road and Menand/Osborne Road, with a post office.[9][10] Ireland's Corners is named for Elias H. Ireland who in 1832 bought the heavily wooded area from the Patroon, Stephen Van Rensselaer.[11] In 1871 the post office at Ireland's Corners was renamed Loudonville.[11]


The community is located directly north of Albany, New York and south of Newtonville. The hamlet is centered on the original Ireland's Corners, the intersection of U.S. Route 9 with Osborne Road (County Route 154)/Menand Road (NY Route 378) (west bound name/east bound names respectively), with the northwest corner bisected by Old Niskayuna Road (County Route 152). Though as a hamlet it has vague borders the census designated place of Loudonville had definite concrete borders.
