New York Town

Settlement in this area was the result of the Delaware and Hudson Canal, which opened in the 1820s during the height of the canal-building boom in New York. The Erie Railroad was built on the Pennsylvania side of the river and added to the growth of the area. In 1870, the twon of Lumberland, NY, funded construction of the Ponod Eddy Bridge, based on the design of Roebling's wire-suspension bridge at Lackawaxen. At its peak, the town had two stores, a telegraph office, 18 homes and a hotel. The canal went out of business in 1898, and The Erie Railroad station did not link to other communities. The bridge was replaced in the early 1900s; a 21st-century replacement that looks like the old bridge was completed in 2019.
