Welcome to Bishop Falls, New York, in summertime 1905. You may have seen it on the postcards. It’s an iconic, multi-tiered waterfall reminding some of a miniature Niagara. There’s a bustling mill taking a slice of the frothy waters to churn out flour to help feed citizens. Nearby in swimming holes are bathing tourists escaping New York City’s summer heat, and rooming in local boarding houses.
And just downstream is a covered bridge and a scenic rocky gorge through which the Esopus Creek rushes, meandering on through a valley that is soon to be submerged.
