Adirondacks New York State USA

Boonville, NY

Lots of interesting little towns and villages along the western edge of the Adirondacks. Most have buildings that have been around since the 1800’s and many have notable or unique architectural characteristics. Boonville was one such town. The town is located at the watershed high point for the Black River system and was the high point for the Black River Canal that connected Boonville to the Erie Canal in Rome, NY and helped to bring economic success to the area. That success is reflected in the size and quality of some of the homes and architecture in the historic area of the town

I was somewhat surprised to see the size of the town’s Masonic Temple but, with a vacant lot next to it, it was clearly visible from the side that it was a substantial building.
