More Info on This Book: Highland and the Town of Lloyd

Fondly known as the “Gateway to Ulster County,” Highland and the town of Lloyd were first settled in the late 1750s. Its history plays an important role in the Hudson River Valley’s past.

In the first book on the town’s history to be published in over 30 years, Lloyd town historian Ethan P. Jackman takes readers on a nostalgic journey down memory lane from the first settlement in 1754 to the early part of the 20th century.

Jackman also includes material on the Lloyd side of the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge that is set to reopen in October 2009 as the “Walkway Over the Hudson.”

Highlights of Highland and the Town of Lloyd:
• Features many never before seen historic photographs from both public and private collections
• Includes snapshots of steamboats, ferries and the West Shore Railroad
• Shares the town’s development of railroads, trolleys and river traffic
• Contains stereoscopic view cards made prior to 1890, reprint maps from 1875, and pictures from a recently discovered cache of glass negatives
