Legendary Rip Van Winkle The story of Rip Van Winkle is a significant part of the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County’s cultural legacy. The famous short story which takes place in the Catskills, first appeared in a collection of essays and short stories titled: “The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon,” penned by Rip’s creator, Washington Irving, in 1819. Washington’s escapist tale goes something like this: Set in pre-Revolutionary New York, Rip Van Winkle lives an ignoble life of ease – much to the disappointment of his wife, Dame Van Winkle. Instead of working, Rip spends his time roaming through the Catskill Mountains and old-growth forests, being idle and enjoying life. Though a wanderer, Rip is well liked by all in his town, especially the children, who love listening to the fanciful stories he tells. One day, Rip wanders off into the mountains to escape the nagging of his wife. Following thunderous noises, he discovers ghostly men playing nine-pins and enjoying a drink, so Rip indulges too. This “magic potion” causes Rip to fall quietly into a deep, dreamless sleep. He awakens 20 years later only to find his beard has grown long and his beloved dog, Wolf, is nowhere to be found. Making his way back to the village, Rip discovers that the American Revolution has taken place. He is no longer recognizable, nor does he recognize any of the townspeople who greet him. Rip also learns that the men he met in the mountain were rumored to be the ghosts of Henry Hudson’s crew who had vanished long ago.

Greene County is proud to be the home of Rip Van Winkle, where he is an honored guest at festivals and events. His likeness can be seen in commemorative statues, in the names of numerous Greene County businesses, and in the wonderful paintings found at many of the region’s historic lodges and resorts:

• The Rip Van Winkle Wine Festival kicks off each year in May – celebrating the bounty of regional wineries, homemade goods and much more. • Play the “Catskill Seven,” a series of golf courses along the Rip Van Winkle Golf Trail offering incredible views of the mountains and valleys.

Rip’s luck holds out and it isn’t long before he finds his place among his grown children and resumes his habitual idleness – even though much of his family has passed on. His tale is repeated and solemnly taken to heart by hen-pecked husbands who wish they too could have shared in Rip’s good fortune and slept through the atrocities of war.

• Explore the legendary “cloves” where Rip took his marathon nap.

Today, Rip’s strange, cautionary tale endures, and his story is part of the cultural fabric of the Catskills.

• Hike to the top of Hunter Mountain and discover a larger-than-life sculpture of Rip Van Winkle. Envisioned by David Slutzky and carved by sculptor Kevin Van Hentenryck, the blue sandstone carving is meant to depict Rip as he awakens to discover his curious predicament.

Discover the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County – a land of legend and lore, mythologized by history and loved by visitors. 2

Art, CulturE History

&

The Great Northern Catskills of Greene County has played muse to artists, poets, sculptors, writers and photographers for centuries. The rugged cloves and plunging waterfalls have captivated painters and authors alike with their untamed majesty. With over 40 art exhibits, galleries, and museums, the Catskill Mountains are a haven for art enthusiasts!

The Hudson River School Art Trail See Art History Come to Life on the Hudson River School Art Trail Take your own self-guided tour of the trail and compare the painted scenes from the 1800s with the same vistas today. In the early 19th century, the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County’s scenic views and striking landscapes inspired a new genre of American art called the Hudson River School. Founded by landscape artist Thomas Cole, the style of painting took off and Cole was soon followed by great landscape painters Frederic Church, Asher B. Durand, Jasper Cropsey, Albert Bierstadt, Sanford Gifford, and many others. Launched in 2005, the Hudson River School Art Trail takes you to the sites that inspired America’s first great landscape artists. The trail begins at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill where Cole worked and lived. Tour Cole’s beautifully restored home to see his original painting studio.

Featuring images from some of the magnificent paintings of the Hudson River School artists, the trail map leads you to the views depicted in the paintings shown in the brochure. Last year the Hudson River School Art Trail installed metal plaques with a raised medallion design at each of the sites to allow you to do a “rubbing” of the plaque as well as scan a QR code for more information about the view. The Hudson River School Art Trail is a project of The Thomas Cole National Historic Site. www.thomascole.org
