Editors Note During the height of industrialization, Jefferson County, New York, came into its own as a prosperous and bustling center of trade and manufacturing. Join author Elise Davis Chan of the Jefferson County Historical Society in celebrating the growth of this great region, from the county,'s early settlement c. 1800 to the area,'s post-World War II prosperity in the 1950s. With a simple turn of the page, readers travel back in time to the small towns that hug the shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, and we visit the city of Watertown and the inland towns dotting the Jefferson County landscape. In the early 1900s, the grand hotels along the St. Lawrence were popular destinations for out-of-town guests during the summer months. Images of the area,'s hotels, churches, train stations, schoolhouses, homes, and workplaces all give us a distinct picture of what life was like for the people living in this region in the 1800s and early 1900s. Private homes are also featured, like the grand abode of former New York Governor Roswell P Flower, and the island castle of George Boldt, proprietor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
