Railway Bridge NYS Historic Marker Dedication

Saturday, June 8th, 2019 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Catskill Creek Pedestrian Bridge: 201 Water St., Catskill, NY 12414

The Greene County Historical Society will host a marker dedication ceremony to commemorate Catskill’s recently restored pedestrian bridge over Catskill Creek. The event will be held at the east side of the pedestrian bridge, immediately adjacent to Crossroads Brewing Company located at: 201 Water St., Catskill, NY 12414.

The bridge, which is nearing 140 years old, was once part of a narrow-gauge railroad originally constructed to shuttle passengers from the steamboat dock at Catskill Point to the famed Catskill Mountain House located at Pine Orchard on South Mountain. The bridge has served as a pedestrian thoroughfare since 1918, and continues to serve as a vital connection between the east and west sides of the Village of Catskill.
