 Prior to 1930, the Sacandaga River Valley was a prime spot for lumbering, woodenware factories and tanneries. Then it was decided that NYS would build a reservoir to control the springtime flooding of the Hudson River in downstream industrial communities. Structures were dismantled, buildings were burned, nearly 4,000 graves were relocated and entire communities were lost beneath the water.
