Saugerties Waterways - This collection focuses on the water, both creek and river, that flows through our area, connecting the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson River. These waterways attracted the first industry in the early 19th century, when Henry Barclay built the Ulster Iron Works and his paper mill. Water supplied the power needed for industry, transportation, as well as pleasure. Here are some of our postcards showing that piece of the story of Saugerties.
