"Smoky Hollow Near Perry, N.Y."

unknown publisher

circa 1910

Smoky Hollow is located just south of the Highbanks Camping area. This photograph, probably taken near the beginning of the 20th century, was taken from western bank of the Valley, looking northeast. The modern camping area is located on the ridge that you see in the distance to the left of the River. You can also see some of the farm activity which took place on the rich river flats. Why was it called "Smok(e)y Hollow"? See our Glimpse on place names of Letchworth Park to find out why!
