Old Milltown, Keesville, New York

Painting Description

We just happened upon this once industrial and industrious town. Think of Elora, Fergus, or St. Marys in this area, or compare this old mill town to villages in Eastern Ontario like Newburgh. When water-power was essential, these villages straddling a river had much commerce and prestige. As water-power yielded to electricity, the status of these burgs diminished. Strange isn’’t it how a change in technology can create new geography. New towns grew close to markets, and these Norman Rockwell villages withered as their reason to be shrank in importance.
