Scenes from Heritage Day in the upper park, October 18, 2014
Cornell archeology students continue excavations of the former Hamlet of Enfield Falls that preceded the park until about 1920. For the past two years, they have been working on the site of the "Rumsey House," home of Oliver Rumsey and his family. Mr. Rumsey ran a sawmill and was a farmer. His son Milton Rumsey was a farmer and a stone mason and taught and supervised many of the Civil Conservation Corps men building trails in the gorge during the Great Depression.
