The History of the North Woods
Free and Open to the Public
Saturday, July 30th from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
The present-day Skidmore College campus is located on land that prior to 1960 was known as Woodlawn Estate. Its grounds contained largely forested land with a large lawn, several elaborate estate homes and more than 20 miles of trails. Some of the historic carriage trails still remain and are part of the Skidmore North Woods trail system. On July 9th or July 30th, join Associate Professor and Chair of the Economics Department, Robert Jones, for a short historical overview and tour of theses trails and their changing presence in the North Woods. Participants should meet in Bolton Hall, Room 280, at 1:30pm for a brief slideshow. The tour in the woods will follow from 2:00-3:30pm.
