In 1971 Martha and Bill Treichler bought an old farm on Mt. Washington, high ridge in upstate New York. Stories of Mt. Washington tells of their search to discover who built their old house and what kind of life he and his family and neighbors had led. By good luck, the Treichlers met the great-great-granddaughter of the man who built their house, and with more good luck, found the descendants of other early settlers. This book tells what they discovered of the old Mt. Washington community.
