The Birds Are Back !
There was a certain amount of sadness for my wife and I as we returned to the North Country two weeks ago. The Coronavirus has shut down most of America and New York State was especially hit hard by this pandemic. While we sheltered ourselves waiting for this to pass we realized that we were not restricted from visiting the Red Barn Preserve and taking advantage of the hiking trails. We have the good fortune of living walking distance from the Preserve which made it easy to check it out. To our amazement- we were not alone when we walked the farm site. I estimate we saw on average a half dozen people on each of our visits. The excitement and interest in the Preserve centered around the Blue Heron Rookery. The birds are back and have been there since early March.

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.
