The road from Carpenter’s Point (now Port Jervis) to the Town of Lumberland. I’m not sure what year this postcard was made. In 1859, the Hawk’s Nest, as this road is called, was a one lane dirt road. It was not paved until 1931.
When I was a kid we called this road the wiggly waggly road. My Aunt Ruth would drive to Port Jervis with 5 boys in the car to go to the A&P to get things she couldn’t buy in Eldred. This was in the 50’s
