Aerial View of Potsdam, NY

Description

A 19th-century gazetteer described Potsdam, located on the Raquette River, as having "a great variety of beatiful situations" and in particular a waterfall near the center of town. During that time its uses were directed primarily to milling Adirondack lumber. Today, however, the interest is perhaps more scenic. In this photo we see Fall Island and upon it Trinity Episcopal Church, built in 1835 then expanded in 1886 using the area's distinctive red Potsdam sandstone.
