GRAHAMSVILLE - An illustrated talk by author Tony Musso: Hidden Treasurers of the Catskills will be held on Sunday, November 7 at 2 p.m. virtually on Zoom and in person at the Time and the Valleys Museum on St. Rt. 55 in Grahamsville.
New York’s Catskill Mountains became a booming summer resort area in the nineteenth century and left behind a number of structures that today serve as reminders of an earlier time. Boarding houses and cottages that once attracted tourists from New York City and the elaborate resorts that followed tell the history of a remote region transformed into beloved summer colonies.
Learn about a variety of sites which remain under the mainstream tourist destination radar, including Woodchuck Lodge, the boyhood home and final resting place of renowned naturalist and author John Burroughs, Zaddock Pratts’ home in Prattsville, the Delaware and Hudson Canal, ten stone houses that date back as early as 1685 in Kingston, the mill complex of the Hanford family, and many more.
