At first glance, Mamakating appears to be an unassuming township in southeastern New York State, but upon closer examination, it is found to be the home of some landmark sites: the first recognizedroad in America, now Route 209; the groundbreaking spot for the first million-dollar private corporation formed in the United States, the D&H Canal; and the oldest soaring airport in the country, the Wurtsboro Airport. Mamakating offers a historical perspective of this friendly lake-and-mountain town in the Catskill region that many NewYork City residents chose, first as a vacation spot and later as their permanent home.

Monika A. Roosa has lived in Mamakating all of her life and has served her community in many ways: as a teacher, a director of Wurtsboro Renaissance, an editorial board member of the Wurtsboro Good News, and a member of the Wurtsboro Board of Trade. She is also a member of four historical societies: Mamakating, Huguenot, Minisink Valley, and Sullivan County. For Mamakating, she has drawn upon a hidden wealth of photographs in private collections throughout the township that best reflect the history of the community.
