In 1979 the Town of North Greenbush officials appointed a committee to go out to the schools in the town and solicit designs for a town seal. The competition was won by a fourth grade student at Bell Top School named Kristin Young. The motto she gave for the seal was: North Greenbush – An Ever Growing Community. The seal depicts evergreens (Groenen Bosh is Dutch for green pine wood), water (the Hudson River and our many smaller streams) grass, rocks and ferns.
