In its heyday, from 1818 into the 1870’s, the West Point Foundry in Cold Spring, New York, helped propel our nation toward industrial independence. Deeply shaded by a second growth forest, the steep-sided valley of Foundry (Margaret) Brook cradles a sleeping giant—the collapsed walls of the industrial complex. Still partially upstanding is the Office Building, built in 1865 at the height of Foundry production. Stephen Tilly, Architect is studying the Office Building to determine requirements for stabilization and viability for restoration and adaptive reuse.
