Site Plan of Nestle's operation on the Gower property, including former locations of brick factory, railroad station and lodge

As documented in a recent post, the site of Nestle's planned water extraction in Kunkletown was targeted by millionaires for development at the turn of the 20th century.  Most of the "improvements" made at that time, by subsidies of the Chestnut Ridge Corporation, are gone today.  Nestle's site plan is below, and also depicts the location of the development that commenced in 1898.

The map takes about 35 seconds to download on a slow DSL connection, and will be better resolution than you will see by zooming in the Scribd window.
