Northeastern Fences Serves Bethlehem
There are two things in particular that come to mind first when you think about Bethlehem: the Hudson River, and the rich history that built around it. It’s said that explorer Henry Hudson landed in Bethlehem when he was traveling up the river, and the growth that followed stayed closely tied to the water with successful ice houses and sturgeon fishermen building businesses and lives around the river.
History isn’t the only interesting thing about the Hudson, of course — over decades of heading out to Bethlehem to build everything from wood privacy fences for homeowners and security fences for business owners, we’ve been blessed to get to explore the miles of beautiful Hudson River shoreline in Bethlehem. And we’re always happy to meet new Bethlehem clients and to have the chance to contribute to the beautiful homes and businesses there.
If you live in Bethlehem and have a fence project you’ve been dreaming up, we’d love to help bring it to life! Northeastern Fences can handle any project you have in mind, from ornate ornamental fences to simple picket fences. Just give us a call and talk to us about what you’re envisioning!
Since Northeastern Fences is based in Selkirk, Bethlehem has long been a regular part of our service area. Traveling throughout the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area and getting to know the clients, cities and towns that surround us is one of the best parts of our job. Over years of visiting Bethlehem, we’ve come to love a lot about it. A few of our favorite things:
Henry Hudson Park
We don’t struggle for places to enjoy scenic afternoons in our area, but even among all the natural beauty here, Henry Hudson Park stands out. From fishing and boating on the river to picnicking and playing sports with the family, the park offers tons of fun and really stands as one of the jewels of Bethlehem.
Elm Avenue Park
The largest park in Bethlehem is a great place to go year round, with swimming, tennis, basketball, volleyball and other sports to do in the warmer months, and a skating rink and skiing/snowmobiling area in the colder months.
The Bethlehem Historical Association And Bethlehem History Hikes
The history of our area on the whole is deep and fascinating, and that’s certainly true of Bethlehem. The Bethlehem Historical Association does a great job of spotlighting that history inside a building that’s a piece of Bethlehem history in and of itself. The Association’s home, the Little Red School House (or Cedar Hill Schoolhouse), was built in the mid-1800s and used continuously for almost 150 years. So it’s perfect that the Bethlehem Historical Association made its home there and developed a certified museum that captures 400 years of area history, with pieces that give us a peek into early Bethlehem life (from ice-harvesting tools to a historic sturgeon net).
The regular History Hikes are an ideal way to get in touch with Bethlehem history while exploring local parks — they’re held all around the area the second Saturday of each month during the History Hike season, from Selkirk Park to South Bethlehem Park.
We’re always glad to get back to Bethlehem to work with new (and longtime) clients. If you live in Bethlehem and have a fence project in mind, give Northeastern Fences a call at (518) 767-9316!
