Stuyvesant Falls is a hamlet in the town of Stuyvesant in Columbia County, New York, United States. The zipcode is: 12174. It was called Glencadia in the 18th century and well into the 19th century, the name having changed sometime after 1848. The French—Scottish derivatives of Glencadia apparently mean a "creek region of simple pleasures."

The hamlet includes a substantial textile mill dating to 1827 and a hydro-electric plant. The word "Glencadia" is popular with local businesses and organizations, including the dairy Glencadia Farms, the Glencadia Rod and Gun Club, and Glencadia Dog Camp.
