The Hartwick Pines State Park totals 9,672 acres, but only 49 of the original 85 acres of old growth forest remains. The park was established by Karen Hartwick with a donation of the land to the state in memory of her late husband, Major Edward Hartwick, who died in World War I.

This image likely dates from the 1930s.
