Catskill NG Relics at Hunter, NY

December 30, 2014 04:13PM avatar
A friend who goes back many years with Hunter Mountain ski area in upstate New York blew up my phone this week with some great pictures I thought might be of interest here. It turns out the "ski cabin" being rented by friends of theirs was the original Hunter depot of the narrow-gauge Stony Clove & Catskill Mountain Railroad, which later operated as the standard-gauge Ulster & Delaware Hunter branch through 1940. The structure was expanded and converted to a residence, supposedly by a railroad employee, and newspapers used as insulation discovered during a subsequent remodel confirmed the 1880s build date. Additionally, the freight shed is still standing, along with several small worker's dwellings and another larger warehouse of some kind.

Comments and insights would be greatly welcomed, as I know little to nothing about the area and frankly only started visiting after everyone in Brooklyn said it was cool. (As a footnote, the Catskills were just named to Fodor's 2015 "25 Places to Visit in 2015.")
