The book contains all the house tours, sketchbooks of local barns and homes, calendars of old photos, etc. that the Upper Unadilla Valley Association has produced since it's inception in 1969. Started as opposition to a proposed dam to flood the small villages of West Edmeston, Leonardsville, Unadilla Forks, Bridgewater, and West Winfield the organization continued by educating residents about the uniqueness of the area- historically, architecturally, even having a geology tour. In the 1990's when a high tension powerline wanted to march across the valley the organiztion spearheaded resistance...and won!
