History

The village was incorporated in 1849. The name Victory is most certainly due to the defeat of the British at the Battles of Saratoga, where Burgoyne surrendered his sword to Gates.

The village has also been called "Victory Mills," likely owing its name to the large (now defunct) factory/mill (Saratoga Victory Manufacturing Company, 1846) centrally located on the primary road through town, Gates Avenue. The US Postal Service refers to the village's ZIP code as Victory Mills.
