Report by Lucille Wiggin New Island and the site of the former Electric Lake provided an interesting destination for 12 of us on a beautiful summer morning. We walked the trails which gave us access to the north side of the South Side Dam and a portion of the old lake bed. Much of it is buried under I-88 between exits 15 and 16. We enjoyed lunch beside the Susquehanna at the site of the old RR bridge which carried trains from Oneonta to Stamford. Sun. Oct 23rd a more extensive Electric Lake Hike will be guided by Jim Loudon author of “Electric Lake; Oneonta’s Forgotten Gem”. Reservations are available by calling Jim at 434-8655 or the Oneonta History Center at 432-0960.
