Catskill Visitors Center
Ashokan is an Historic District on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Ashokan was a favored hunting and fishing ground for the Munsee Indians for generations, and became home to Americans of European descent in the 1730s. The first mill and blacksmith shop in Ulster County were built here by Lemuel Winchell who later constructed Winchell’s Inn, Ashokan’s historic centerpiece.
