New York State - FOUR

 



The Stone Windmill - Circa 1825
Built by Hugh McConnell, miller from Scotia. Through the 1800's the structure served as a local jail & in WWII as an air warning post. After the war it served briefly as an American Legion Club House. The land was donated to the village by Charles Chapman in 1943 & 1947 was named Chapman Park.

while we were there, a man working, so that makes you happy to see folks keep the towns looking so pretty, now we were there right before Memorial Day, so maybe they were really beautifying the area??! I am amazed by New York State and their amazing workers, the cemeteries were so well taken care of, just thumbs up there!! WELL DONE!!




I am curious how old this train station was?? We just happened to notice it sitting back in the forest here, it could use some work, but still good bones, fun right??!

Tibbetts Point Lighthouse, Cape Vincent, NY
Wow, this lighthouse, no clue what kind of bugs were infecting the area but wow ...now they were not biting or stinging you ...but they were a real pain, flying into your face, bugging your nose or ears, it was a real windy day, and they were just covering all warm surfaces. It was wild to come back to your vehicle to see they had totally covered them. WILD TIMES!!!







Route 104A, right near the Post Office in Sterling, NY
