WEST POINT FOUNDRY PRESERVE (Putnam) - Tours will focus on the foundry’s 100-year history, its operations and diverse workforce, and Scenic Hudson’s efforts to protect and interpret the remains of this industrial powerhouse while preserving the land’s natural beauty.
A pacesetter in America’s Industrial Revolution, West Point Foundry manufactured cannons—known as Parrott guns—credited with helping to win the Civil War, as well as some of the nation’s first steam engines, iron ships and pipes for New York City’s water system.
