Boy and the Boot

Simple fountain of the Boy and the Boot in the middle of a quaint village. Not many people know of Ellenville. Rich in American history, it gets overshadowed by Manhattan Island and the greater Catskills. Ellenville is in a beautiful valley surrounded by two mountain ranges, the Shawanagunks and the Catskills. A beautiful drive on route 52 will take your breath away.

Did you say beautiful drive? Sorry, we were still thinking about that Boy and the Boot...
