East Branch, N.Y.

is situated near the junction of the Beaverkill and Delaware rivers, and is in one of the most beautiful valleys in the state. The Village has 400 population; two churches, Baptist and Methodist, an excellent school and up-to-date stores. The river scenery is picturesque, and the bass fishing fine. Many small streams, such as Baxter Brook, Trout Brook and Read's Creek, empty into the river, and in the trout season, fishermen have a fine opportunity to display their skill. All of the streams are well stocked.

Baker's Eddy, East Branch, N.Y.

The mountains in the vicinity of East Branch are heavily timbered and during the fall, partridges and rabbits are numerous and the hunting is excellent. A point of interest is the fire observation tower situated on the highest mountain in this section, overlooking several counties in New York and Pennsylvania.
