Friends of Taconic State Park
Friends of Taconic State Park was established in 2008 to support cultural, recreational and educational activities within the park. The group offers outdoor events throughout the year, as well as educational programs on a variety of subjects including the history of the Copake Iron Works, an historic site located within the park.
Amongst other projects, the Friends recently completed the stabilization and preservation of the site's historic blast furnace. Unique for its intact state, the furnace offers a rare and illuminating glimpse into 19th century iron making. The $110,000 project was partially funded by a $50,000 interest free loan which the group is now fundraising to repay. Proceeds from today’s event will help pay down the remaining $7,500 balance.
Special thanks and gratitude are extended to Margaret Roach for her abiding support of and commitment to our efforts.
