9780738504759: Taconic Pathways:: Through Beekman, Union Vale, LaGrange, Washington, and Stanford (Images of America)

For motorists traveling in Dutchess County on the Taconic State Parkway, the dominant impression is the beauty of a seemingly unchanged natural landscape. Nestled under the shadow of the Taconic (Berkshire) Mountains to the east with views west to the Catskills, the parkway follows a ridge halfway between the towns and cities on the Hudson River and those in the Harlem Valley bordering New England. The parkway, as envisioned by a commission appointed in 1925 and initially chaired by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was built “to open up a very beautiful section at present inaccessible” and “to provide a new through road from New York City.” Roosevelt later claimed the road as his “invention.” Taconic Pathways shows in part what has happened to the parkway and to five remote towns that it opened to accelerated growth and considerable change. In the beginning, the parkway was a leisurely recreational

experience that offered breathtaking views, many of which were previously reserved for circling hawks or the fortunate locals who knew the back trails to the heights; today, the parkway has become a route for commuting residents. Before the parkway was built, Beekman, Union Vale, LaGrange, Washington, and Stanford were dotted with farms and hamlets; with the

parkway came the rise of suburban living and an accelerated decline of the family farm.

About the Author:

Joyce C. Ghee and Joan Spence are the authors of three other books in Arcadia’s Images of America series, two on Poughkeepsie and one on the Harlem Valley. For Taconic Pathways, they have selected nearly 220 striking images from the collections of the Dutchess County Historical Society, local historians and historical societies, and individuals. They have combined these images with compelling narrative to tell the dramatic story of one of the most beautiful roads in the country and its effects on one once remote region. In Taconic Pathways, the countryside beckons from all directions and there is history at every turn.
