Also see . . .  Ontario and Western Railroad Passenger Station (Wikipedia). It was built by the New York, Ontario and Western Railway (O&W) in 1903 for the dual purpose of bringing tourists to Napanoch and inmates to the newly established prison. A branch from Ellenville to Kerhonkson was opened in 1902, following the recently abandoned Delaware and Hudson Canal, a portion of which survives just west of the station building. O&W passenger service ended in the 1953. Trackage was dismantled in 1957 when the O&W was liquidated. (Submitted on September 1, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
