Alplaus Historical Marker
There will be an informational meeting regarding the disposition of the old post office building at 311 Alplaus Avenue next to the firehouse on August 10th at 7 pm and again on August 24th at 7 pm at the Alplaus firehouse. Both meetings will present the same information. The meetings are to inform residents of the fire district about the options for the building and the results of a structural survey, asbestos survey, and an appraisal of the property. The meetings are open to all residents of Glenville Fire District #2 which includes Alplaus, Woodhaven, Helena Estates and Mohawk Ave from the ANG Base just past the Glendale home.

Alplaus is a hamlet located in the southeast corner of the town of Glenville, Schenectady County, New York. Its name is derived from the Dutch Aal Plaats, or "Place of the Eels". Alplaus is located on the north bank of the Mohawk River. The ZIP Code 12008 generally defines the area of the hamlet. Rexford borders Alplaus to the east, the Mohawk River borders on the south. Generally, the Glenridge and Schenectady Country Airport represent the western border. The population in the 12008 zipcode for the 2010 census was 472.

The Alplaus Firehouse is at the center of the community and the volunteer fire company services Glenville Fire District #2. The major natural feature of the hamlet is the Alplaus Kill, which is a tributary to the Mohawk River. Alplaus Avenue is the main road through the hamlet with several streets branching from it. Sadly the community post office was closed in 2012 after being in operation for 124 years,
But we've still got our ZIP! 12008.
