This episode of the Kaatscast podcast features a tour of the “the loop” of Routes 25 and 23c that connects Haines Falls to Tannersville, via the mountaintop.
Cyndi LaPierre and Dede Thorpe talk about area historic homes and the origins of Onteora Park; famed residents like Maude Adams (Peter Pan); visiting the Mountain Top Arboretum; and a church that served as a quarantine during the 1914 influenza epidemic.
