These are a few old pictures of places often visited when visiting
Ellenville because of there uniqueness and beauty of the time.

Cragsmoor, NY

 High above Ellenville. Located in the Shawangunk Mountains.
Located  in  Ulster County, NY,  Cragsmoor  first  came into existence in  the early 1870's when
Edward  Lamson  Henry,  William H. Beard,  J.G.  Brown, Mrs. Eliza   Pratt Greatorex and her  two
artist daughters,  Kathleen Honora Greatorex and Eleanor Gretorex, discovered the enchantments
 held by the plateau in the Shawangunk Mountains. E.L. Henry was the first artist to build a summer
home here,  and Mrs. Henry christened the house NA-PEE-NIA, a name from the Lenape Indians.
 Word quickly  spread  to other artists about Cragsmoor and its wonders, though the colony did not
attract  the  traditional  struggling  artist  with  little or no recognition. On the contrary, artists of note
 who were already prosperous sought to make their homes among the splendor.
