This gallery serves as an archive of images I have made, found, and that I will continue to make about and in Wassaic. Wassaic is our adopted home and we yearn for images of its past, collecting obsessively. Sadly we are often left empty handed in our searches. Because of our experiences in finding very little it is my goal to create the next round of historical images for this great hamlet.
