Peaceful Farm

Jewett, Catskills

The town of Jewett, part of a peaceful section of the Catskill State Park known as the “the mountain top”, is a haven for hikers, skiers visiting nearby Hunter and Windham Mountains and second home owners. Jewett’s northeast section is dominated by the Blackhead Mountain Range, which includes the 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest mountains in the Catskills: Black Dome (3,990 feet), Thomas Cole (3,950 feet), Blackhead (3,950 feet). Jewett was first settled in 1784 and was later incorporated in 1849 from sections of the Hunter and Lexington townships. The town is named for Judge Freeborn G. Jewett (1791-1858), a U.S. Congressional Representative from New York (1831-1833) and Chief Judge for the New York State Court of Appeals (1847-1853).
