..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

God writes the gospel not in the Bible
alone, but on trees and flowers and
clouds and stars. ~Martin Luther

How did "Photo taken in Hudson, NY" change to "Photo taken in Catskill. NY?

Hi, the photo was taken at Olana, Frederick Summer's estate. I could not figure out exactly what town that was in. Let me know if you know. IS there a rivalry i am unaware of between the two towns? I found the cats in catskill and the dogs (my preference) in Hudson! thanks, rose-marie

Olana has no exact address but it is in Hudson, NY 12534. Today the Olana State Historic Site is accessed off of Route 9G in Hudson, though that isn't the original entrance.

This photo must be from the cutting garden just below the wall that circles the entrance, right? I recognize the chicken wire.

Olana is a very beautiful place. Frederic Church called it "The center of the world."

The cat-dog rivalry between Catskill and Hudson is a friendly rivalry, nothing serious.
