Timber and Baseball... Bluestone and the Statue of Liberty

The Village of Hancock is “The Gateway to the Delaware River.” The East and West Branches of the Delaware River converge in a Wedding of the Waters at the base of Point Mountain in Hancock to form the headwaters of the Delaware River, which eventually flow to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Empire State Building and the base of the Statue of Liberty, contain Hancock Bluestone.

This village, whose main industries are timber and bluestone, features streams, lakes and ponds teeming with rainbow, brook and brown trout, perch, bass bullhead and eel.
