Wonderful turnout for the presentation entitled “The Notch in the Golden Age of Tourism” by Kelli Huggins on July 17 under the Lexington pavilion. The West Kill Notch, also known as Echo Notch and the Deep Notch, was instrumental in expanding local tourism in the 1800s. Kelli’s interesting historical facts and excerpts of personal accounts of people enjoying the peaceful and healthy climate of West Kill in the 1800s was delightful and very informative.
