This video shows the demolition of the Red House Dam. At this point holes were bored and grout injected to stabilize the base of the dam and new 24" drain pipes were grouted in with new shut off valves installed. The top layer of the dam is being removed and precast sections duplicating the old architecture will be placed anew on top of the dam once the top layer is peeled off. Good weather has aided the project. Thanks for watching!
A brief tour of Allegany State Park's Thunder Rocks located off ASP Rte 2 across from Francebrook Rd.
At the end of the Bova Cottage Road lies the ruins of what once was a three hill downhill ski area, one of two abandoned in the park. This was closed in the early 1970's because of competition from Ellicottville, and its primitive state.
Here's an original park masonry bridge that probably dates back to the 1930's. When I first saw it, it reminded me of a castle and that's what I've been calling it ever since: Castle Bridge. It is located about 1.5 miles from the Red House Campgrounds on ASP 1 going towards Quaker. Check it out sometime! Thanks for watching!
A brief video of the Red House Restaurant now open during the winter season!
