The Catskill Mountain House and The World Around (2010) DVD, color, 80 min

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: history

There isn't much left of the once-grand Catskill Mountain House. The lavish resort hotel was perched on a precarious ledge in Green County for over a century. During its 19th-century heyday, the hotel embodies the peak of luxury for a generation of the rich and famous. But like many resort hotels of the Catskill' glittering past, the Mountain House fell into disuse in the 20th cenry and was finally destroyed by the state of New York in 1963 to return its scenic overlook to wilderness.
