Theodore Gordon, considered the father of modern American fly fishing, perfected his dry-fly techniques here in the 1800s.

Before Sullivan County became famous for its large number of premium hotels in the “Borscht Belt” of the 20th century, it was heavily promoted as a 19th century sportsman’s destination. The opening of the Monticello and Port Jervis Railroad in 1870 made the area accessible by a direct two hour trip from New York City. The line ran from Piermont, NY, through Port Jervis and on to Lake Erie and passed directly through Forestburgh. Articles praising Sullivan County as a sportsman’s paradise appeared in the New York Times in 1870’s.
Numerous private clubs were formed from the mid-1870’s through the early twenties by New York City residents who could afford to buy exclusive access to some of the finest hunting and fishing spots in the nation.
