Hurley explores the historical area southwest of Kingston that is bounded by the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains. It depicts the town of Hurley—a national historic district—and its individual hamlets of Hurley, West Hurley, Glenford, Morgan Hill, Ashton, and Eagles Nest. It shows stone houses dating back to the late 1700s, famed bluestone quarries of the 1800s, and reservoir construction that swallowed four of the hamlets in the early 1900s.
Author Bio: Deana F. Decker, a local resident and member of the Hurley Heritage Society, brings together photographs from the Hurley Heritage Society, the town historian, and several private collections from local residents to create Hurley, a fascinating history of a unique town.
