Welcome – Bienvenue – Bienvenidos

img_1039Thank you for visiting our locally made website about visiting and living in the Town of Keene, New York. Use the menus in the upper right corner of the page to find out where to stay and eat, as well as the many ways to enjoy yourself while in our peaceful valley. The site was written for visitors, for those moving to town, and for those who live here but need to know how to find something online about the town and its organizations, events, etc.

The blog portion of this website can be accessed by the rightmost menu above.  We will post there occasionally to highlight something noteworthy and new in town.  You can follow the blog using the email signup to the right.

This website is written by Dave Mason.  He spent every summer of his life in Keene Valley (beginning in 1953) staying at his grandparents camp off Airport Road.  In the late 1970’s he managed to buy some land on Gristmill Lane in Keene.  He and his partner, Jim Herman, moved to Keene in 2004 from Boston. Previously, Jim Herman and Dave Mason wrote the Guide to Giving and Volunteering in Greater Keene. They have led the Town-Wide Broadband Project,  the High Peaks Education Foundation, the Keene Flood Recovery Fund , the Upper Ausable Community Association and the Keene Valley Library.
