In 1889, a prominent citizen of Stamford, NY purchased 20 acres on the top of Utsayantha Mountain, built an attractive four-story observation house (still there) and deeded the property to the town as a park. In 1934 the NY Dept. of Conservation built a 60’ Aermotor tower that is maintained and open to the public to climb.
