    Historical Context

    The Johnstown, Gloversville and Kingsboro was incorporated November 12, 1873, under general laws of New York, for the purpose of constructing and operating a horse-car railroad extending from Johnstown to Kingsboro (now a part of Gloversville.)

    The company operated 4.09 miles of track. It was originally constructed as a horse-car railroad around 1876 and was changed to an electric railroad in 1893.

    The line was eventually leased to the Fonda, Johnstown and Gloversville Railroad Company.
