General Information

Description - New Yorks's rich history is captured at sites preserved by both the State and the Federal Government. One of the original colonies and the site of much revoluntionary war history, New York sites capture the American heritage in a unique blend of historic sites.

Attractions - From the birthplace of Walt Whitman to Franklin Roosevelt's home to the battle fields of the Revoluntionary war, New York has preserved its historic sites for all to benefit.

Recreation - Recreational activities at historic sites include visitor centers, interpretive programs and viewing of historic buildings and locations.

Climate - New York experiences four distinct seasons, with spring and fall being the most pleasant times to travel through the region. Humidity in the southeastern areas of the state can make summer travel uncomfortable, although many festivals and special events occur during that season. Summer highs in the lower elevations of New York usually don't surpass 90 degrees F. Thunderstorms occur a few times a week and can bring needed relief from the heat.

Location - The location of historic sites is available along with driving instructions and a map on each of the wildernet pages describing an individual site.
