Village Historical Painting
Village of Frankfort Historical Painting
By Jim Parker
Frankfort-New York-Painting Celebrating 150 Years
The painting depicts the Village when the Erie Canal, west Shore Railroad, the Match Factory, and the Balloon Farm were all booming.
Carlotta Meyer was setting world records in her chemical balloons, the matches made in Frankfort were being shipped worldwide, over 400 canal boats were passing through town every 24 hours and the railroad was building a major repair facility on the east end of the Village.
Brick buildings were replacing earlier wooden ones. New homes and churches were going up. Dirt roads were being paved and the citizens were prospering.
From the early Palatine German settlers in the 1720s the population became more ethnic with Irish, Italian, and polish arriving to build the new Erie Canal, the railroads, and the newly developing agricultural tool factories.
It was a pleasure to return the Village with its key industries and people to this earlier time.
