HydroQuest is actively conducting field work to document archaeologic, geologic and hydrologic resources within New York State owned Bluestone Wild Forest in Ulster County, NY. This work has included mapping historic wagon roads, quarries, workshop areas, foundations, stone-walled pastures, a 163-year old farmstead, an abandoned railroad station, and unique geologic features that combine to portray an important early 19th and 20th century landscape. The forest is rich in history that is only now being revealed. Please peruse and enjoy the findings to date. The Power Point presentation is an excellent place to start.
