continued The entire property is 140 acres with five trails and is part of the Helderberg Escarpment. There are caverns on the property and a quarry that some believe the stones for the Brooklyn Bridge were taken from.
“I think there is immense historic significance here, which people will appreciate,” said Folsom. “The importance of this area goes back to Native American and Dutch colonial times when our area was being developed. There is also a teaching opportunity here that is hard to find anywhere else because of the property’s geology.”
The Hollow-een celebration is free to the public and children may dress up in their costumes, but parents should keep in mind some of the activities involve hiking and should plan costumes accordingly.
The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. Hollyhock Hollow is located at 46 Rarick Road, Selkirk.
