The Saratoga Surrender Site in Schuylerville commemorates the location where British General John Burgoyne surrendered his army to American General Horatio Gates on October 17, 1777. In 2006, the Open Space Institute purchased the property from private ownership and helped develop a public observation plaza at the site.
