Letchworth State Park Photo Essay
William Pryor Letchworth gifted 1,000 acres to New York State in 1907. These acres represent some of the most picturesque in the US. Coined the "Grand Canyon of the East", todays Letchworth State Park features a deep gorge cut by the Genesee River, three waterfalls, and miles of hiking trails on 14,350 acres. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) back in the 1930's built stone walls, stairs and bridges giving people access to each of the Genesee River waterfalls and are still in use today. The original Glen Iris Inn, where Mr. Letchworth hosted US presidents and other influential dignitaries, is now a restaurant and popular inn for guests of the park. The park is about 35 miles south of Rochester, New York.
