1. Kings Highway Marker
Inscription.  
This road was a main artery of travel through the county for more than two centuries, connecting Hudson River communities from New Jersey to Albany. Originally an Indian trail, it was gradually widened by fur traders, post riders, farm carts, stagecoaches and during the Revolution, the military. Still called Kings Highway in places, it has been largely by-passed by newer roads.
