Description An abandoned lumber mill/tannery in the town of Foerstburgh, New York, USA.The town of Forestburgh was formed from parts of the Towns of Mamakating and Thompson in 1837.Forestburgh's main industries in its early years were tanning, quarrying, and lumbering. The mountains on either side of Bushkill Creek contained quarries of flagging, curbing, and building stone (also known as bluestone).The quarrying industry began to decline in the late 1890's with the invention of concrete. The oak and hemlock bark used in tanning became scarce, signaling the end of the tanning industry. It was at this point, however, that the resort industry began to flourish in Forestburgh.Photographed in Forestburgh, New York, USA. Composed in Photoshop with filters, original textures, and textures by Design Cuts.
