Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in the Ulster County hamlet of Mount Tremper from groundbreaking to ribbon-cutting.</p> <p>Hundreds of people gathered to watch former Congressman Maurice Hinchey cut the ribbon in front of his namesake visitors' center, designed to a "gateway to the Catskills" that welcomes visitors to the region on Route 28, in a ceremony at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1.</p> <p>Hinchey himself did not speak at the event, but listened as a long list of dignitaries honored him and celebrated the interpretive center project.</p> <p>Calling Hinchey a "living legend," Ulster County Executive Mike Hein said that the interpretive center is "the culmination of an extraordinary number of people simply pushing."</p> <p>"As the mist rises off these mountains, so too does the veil that has far too long covered this enchanted region," said Rob Stanley, the town supervisor of Shandaken, where the interpretive center is located. "We are here, we are here, we are here."</p> <p><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/u4/IMGP7807%20copy.jpg" style="width: 480px; height: 319px;" /><span class="read-more"><a href="/2015/catskill-interpretive-center-celebrates-grand-opening"><strong>&nbsp; Read more</strong></a></span></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-body-image-1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_body_image_1" width="480" height="319" alt="" src="http://www.watershedpost.com/sites/default/files/Julia%20Reischel/Martens%20small_0.jpeg?1435777774" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-viewfield field-field-in-story-ad"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="view view-in-story-ad view-id-in_story_ad view-display-id-block_1 view-dom-id-083a548b96af7ec0b7fa3ab0fb8920e6"> <div class="view-content"> <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first views-row-last"> <div class="views-field views-field-body"> <div class="field-content"><div style="padding:5px;border:1px solid #e0e0e0;"> <!-- 300x250_in_story --> <div id='div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0' style='width:300px; height:250px; float:left;margin-right:20px;'> <script type='text/javascript'> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0'); }); </script> </div> <div class="smalladz" style="margin-left:10px;"><a href="http://woodstockwritersradio.com/"><img src="/images/woodstockfrankel.png" width="150" height="250" alt="Woodstock Writers Radio with Martha Frankel and guests" style="margin-bottom:5px;"/></a></div> </div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> http://www.watershedpost.com/2015/catskill-interpretive-center-celebrates-grand-opening#comments Mount Tremper Shandaken Ulster County Catskill Interpretive Center Catskill Mountain Scenic Byway Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway Catskill Scenic Byway Catskills Maurice D.
