Regarding Luther Forest. This beautiful preserve has now become the home of a large chip making plant in the Luther Forest Technology Campus (formerly, Malta Test Station) and several subdivisions of new homes. There are some trees still standing.
Also see . . . Malta Test Station. Malta Test Station, located in Malta, New York, is a former US Army fuel and explosives testing facility. It was established in 1945 and used to test rocket engines for the US Army's "Project Hermes", new fuels and explosives. It has also been used for atomic energy research. The site and surrounding area has since been transformed into the Luther Forest Technology Campus, home to a new chip fabrication plant owned by GlobalFoundries. "Project Hermes" is commemorated by Hermes Road, one of the main access roads to the Technology Campus. It was listed as a Superfund site in 1987 and removed from the list following cleanup in 1999. It is being monitored by the US Environmental Protection Agency (Submitted on January 23, 2019, by Steve Stoessel of Niskayuna, New York.)
