Hamlet of Auriesville

Auriesville, a hamlet in the Town of Glen, is most known for the National Shrine of the North American Martyrs. This hilltop shrine is dedicated to three of America's canonized martyrs, who "shed their blood for Christ" on or around this spot in the 1640s, Father Isaac Jogues, Renè Goupil and John LaLande. Settlers named the village Auries, as this was the name of the last known Mohawk People to have lived there.
