Ever Wonder How you Could Help Improve Your Town Park?

We are reaching out to residents and businesses within the Town of Cairo to assist us in obtaining the approval of a grant to help achieve the goals of improving the Angelo Canna Town Park for all that come here.

A template is attached that can be used to show your support.  A few words of your own and/or your own letterhead would also have a great impact in showing how the Park is utilized and appreciated.

Just a few minutes of your time could help us complete the Park improvements so it will be here for generations to come. Thank you so much for your consideration and assistance in achieving this great goal.

Please feel free to mail the support letters, drop them off to the Cairo Town Hall, or email any questions, letters of support or information to supervisorclerk@townofcairo.com.

Letters can be mailed to:  Supervisor, Town of Cairo, PO Box 728, Cairo NY  12413

Did you know facts.

Did you know...

Tourism has been Cairo’s largest industry since the 1800’s. It was one of the first towns in the area to develop ski slopes and trails. Many of the regular visitors have made the conversion to seasonal or permanent residents.

The Cairo Railroad provided freight transportation to the industries in town starting in 1884. Early cargo consisted of locally mined bluestone, and hay and fruit from the local farms. In 1894 the Catskill Shale Brick Company became the railroads primary customer until the plant closed in 1914. The lack of steady freight and the increasing improvements to the local highways resulted in the termination of service at the end of the 1918 tourist season.
