Set in a tranquil landscape, the area possesses a wonderful combination of natural and artistic attractions: an environmental sculpture, Opus 40- Seamon Park- and a nature trail leading to the Saugerties Lighthouse.

This book is a visual history made up of over 200 photographs which take readers down historic Main Street in the Village of Saugerties and through the outlying hamlets such as Katsbaan, West Camp, and Glasco. Here, you will see a late-eighteenth through mid-twentieth-century river town come alive with its early stone, brick, and iron industries. People shaped this communitys identity and gave it strength. In this volume, you will meet some impressive personalities, like Augusta Savage, renowned Harlem Renaissance artist, and Roger Donlon, the first recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Vietnam conflict.

Whether in the arts, industry, or in the armed services, Saugerties has nurtured many men andwomen of courage and vision.
