TOWN OF SHAWANGUNK, NY DETAILS:



ABOUT:

The Town of Shawangunk consists of the Hamlets of Bruynswick, Crawford, Dwaarskill, Walker Valley, Wallkill and Ulsterville.

The land here is a broken and hilly upland, spanning the high ridge of the Shawangunk Mountains along the northwest side of the range.

The Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge is one of New York's top 10 areas for grassland dependent migratory birds.  Whether visitors are bird watching or hiking, they are rewarded with spectacular views.

Shawangunk (originally pronounced Shong-um) derives its name from the Esopus Indian language. Early settlers purchased the tract of land "behind the Paltz" from the native tribe in 1682. It was settled in 1709 as part of New Paltz, but was incorporated separately in 1788.

Early industries consisted primarily of light manufacturing, especially the production of ox bows, baker peeks, brick makers' supplies, wagon rims, and, with the Ulster Hat Company, soft felt hats. In 1871, coal mining sputtered to a start when a small vein was found in the Shawangunk range, but the operations were soon abandoned.
