CLIMATE: snow in winter
BEST TIME TO VISIT: any, but winter
Zero residents; deserted for more than 50 years. This ghost town is on the same road which leads to Potterville, NY (which is miss-zoned in 1). The location is roughly 3 miles south of Potterville. It appears on Mapquest, but not on Google Maps. However, it appears to be near the location of Eger Road shown on Google Maps. I could find no references to it on the Internet, but the old Ellenville newspapers may have information. The Ellenville Journal now Shawangunk Journal is one place to start. http://www.ellenvillejournal.com/staff.html (Julie Muller has the same last name as the owner I remember, Frank, so she might have access to some more ancient material. The other paper was the Ellenville Press which closed in 1978. Its archives are at the Ellenville Public Library - http://eplm.org/gallery.aspx.
|I remember reading something about the town many years ago and seem to recall that it may have been built in support of a local mining operation which was abandoned after WWII. Submitted by: Les Meyers
