Living in Cold Spring, NY

Cold Spring, also called Cold Spring-on-Hudson, is a village located in Philipstown, Putnam County, New York. This highly acclaimed community situated on the east bank of the scenic Hudson River began as a tiny settlement until 1818, when local citizen Gouveneur Kemble established the West Point Foundry. The foundry played a key role in ironworks manufacturing, particularly in the production of steam engines, piping for water mains in New York City, Boston and Chicago, as well as sugar milling equipment, and smaller iron products for household use. It reached its peak during the Civil War, when it became the production site of Parrott Guns. The success of the foundry brought a major population boost to Cold Spring, employing over 1400 people in its heyday.
