“Sensing a theme? Prattsville and Pratt Rock were both named for the town’s founder, Zadock Pratt, who had a distinguished and varied career ranging from soldier to banker to politician. But what he is best known for is establishing the world’s largest tannery (at the time) in the 1830s right here in the Northern Catskills,” Ben Axelson, New York Upstate publication.
We are excited to announce that Zadock Pratt Museum has been awarded a Preserve New York Grant to complete a Cultural Landscape Report of the herb garden. It is hoped that studying the herb garden area as well as the museum’s archives can lay the groundwork for restoring this important interpretive feature of the site.
A trail continues to be blazed to Huntersfield Creek Falls, a hidden natural beauty in Prattsville. Read the story in the latest issue of The Mountain Eagle:
