Summary

The historic village of Cold Spring lies on the east bank of the Hudson River in the heart of the scenic Hudson Highlands, about 50 miles north of New York City. Around Cold Spring features images of Cold Spring, the neighboring hamlet of Garrison, and the village of Nelsonville. Many of the photographs date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries and depict street scenes, patriotic celebrations, and historic and architecturally significant buildings like mansions, churches, and schools. Photographs, postcards, and other visual materials further illuminate the story of Cold Spring and its surrounding area.
