Valatie is a village with several waterfalls in Columbia County, New York, United States. The population was 1,819 at the 2010 census. The village is at the center of the town of Kinderhook on US 9.HistoryValatie was first named Pachaquak, meaning "cleared meadow", by the earliest Native American settlers—Algonquian Mohicans—who lived along the banks of Valatie's two waterways now referred to as Valatie Kill and Kinderhook Creek.Part of the original New Netherland, the first European settlers were the Dutch who settled Kinderhook around 1665, and named this area "Vaaltje", which means "little falls". The first post office was established in 1832. By the early 19th century there were nine cotton mills in Valatje operating on power derived from the famous waterfalls; the village was incorporated in 1856. With a bustling Main Street, Valatie was considered the center of commerce in northern Columbia County throughout the 19th century.Prominent architectural landmarks include the First Presbyterian Church of Valatie. This congregation formed in 1835; the high Victorian Gothic Revival-style building designed by Ogden & Wright Architects was built in 1878 of red brick with limestone trim, slate roof and slate dormer windows. It features a porte-cochère and open bell tower. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
