Spring Is In The Air
April 15, 2019
Everywhere I look I see signs that Spring is returning to the North Country. Our first signs of this included the sightings of the blue herons in the Rookery. As we have been reporting for the last Month- our Blue Heron Rookery has over 60 nests and these nests are fully occupied. It has been almost comical to watch these large beautiful birds come together in a single nest. We encourage hikers and bird watchers to come to the Red Barn Preserve to see these amazing birds. It is a one quarter mile hike from the entrance of the Preserve back to the boardwalk viewing area. Visitors should bring waterproof footwear, warm hiking clothes and binoculars. The nests are about 500 feet from the trail and the end of a large pond.

Welcome to the Gateway Museum
The Gateway Museum provides a full summer of concerts, lectures, classes and displays for the residents of Morristown, tourists and surrounding communities. The building that houses the Gateway Museum was built in 1910, by the Comstock family as a community center for their employees at their factory, Dr. Morse’s Indian Root Pills. Once a thriving township with multiple factories and businesses, the town has changed, but is still an unpolished gem in the North Country.
