FRENCH’S HOLLOW

cropped-015.JPG-21-e1338061358983.jpgRoaming around on my birthday yesterday, I decided to take a detour to the area known as French’s Hollow/French’s Mill, on the Normanskill.

I remember when the bridges were open, and frequently drove across them between Guilderland Center and US Route 20 – the Great Western Turnpike. Here’s a link to the area’s history. http://www.uhls.org/pastprojects/ispy/guil/guil-french.html

Yes, this is where the dam is on the Normanskill, that created the Waterviliet Reservoir, at the junction of US 20 and NY 158.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
