1968-1974 County Road 3 Samsonville, NY 12461
Own a piece of History. This 26+ Acre, mostly wooded parcel contains within the site of General Henry A. Samson's Tannery. The remains of rows of dry stacked stone troughs used to soak hides in the Tanning process are still present. General Samson's Tannery was a large one by the days standard, one of the most prominent in the Catskills, employing seventy men and processing a remarkable 31,000 hides a year, the Hamlet of Samsonville was built around it. The Mettacahonts Stream runs through the entire length of the property with wide and narrower sections for swimming, wading, fishing or just admiring. The Farmhouse where General Samson stayed occasionally when checking his business operation is ready for your renovation. Standing since 1890 this seeming very solid structure sits atop an old stone foundation with Mountain Views. An Interior Inspection will reveal Hemlock framing and plaster and lath walls. If you'd like to build something closer to the stream that's an option too. This is a truly special property!!, Directions From Kingston: Route 209S to right on County Road 2 (Krumville/Kripplebush Rd). 8.5 miles to Hamlet of Samsonville.
