Marking Trail in Philipstown, NY

December 2, 2008

Jeanine and Headhood were working off a great turkey dinner cooked mainly by Aviva by painting telephone poles in Philipstown, NY.  Additional thrills were ours as we painted our markers through the former downtown area of McKeel’s Corners.  The buildings, all of them, were removed in the 1950s to make way for the widening of Routes 301 and 9 (aka Albany Post Road). The little white church shown in the video dates from the 1840s.  North on Route 9, the two-room brick school house has been boarded up for years.
