Read More about Overlook Mountain
It’s time Overlook Mountain is honored and protected in a way that reflects its unique status and the immense contribution the mountain has made to humanity. The Overlook Mountain Center (OMC), through promoting cultural history, environment awareness, and community through collaboration, will act as a permanent human reflection of the mountain, honoring Overlook; the mountain that has given so much, to so many, in so many ways, for so long. OMC will create programming, exhibits and experiances that celebrate all aspects of Overlook Mountain, its’ past, present and future.
Despite its historical importance and beauty, large land parcels on Overlook Mountain are being threatened by real estate development. When two large parcels were threatened in Lewis Hollow, concerned citizens knew we must act quickly to help save this land! And we did!

This unique, one-of-a-kind property was Catskill historian Alf Evers backyard. The flora and fauna, along with the mysterious man-made stone constructions, have been the source of study for not only historians, but ecologists, biologists hydrologists, and archaeological researchers as well, all seeking to understand the various site features in their proper cultural context.
