The Friends of Taconic State Park invite visitors to HAVE A BLAST as we celebrate the end of another banner year at the Copake Iron Works.

You can even put on a hard hat and stand in the furnace while imagining what life was like in this important historical factory town.

Visitors will also learn about exciting projects and enhancements to the site that are forthcoming. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be available.
