Schrade Walden NY Ruins

Post by JulesVane » Sun Jun 10, 2018 7:45 pm

So many knives made here. It's wonderful that many of the knives survived, but the factory did not. Pictures taken 06/10/2018 on Rt. 208 in Walden NY.

...This is the remains of the original Walden factory before the company moved to Ellenville NY. Not sure of dates. I couldn't get around back, but just more of the same shame.

Another sad example of our vanishing industrial heritage. Detroit, for instance, is full of examples.

Great pictures Chris

What a lovely looking old building I'll bet this was in its day.Its crying out for fixing up Ind becoming something of its former glory. Nice to see it for me not living in the states but sad as it shows the way things are going for quality knife manufacturers .

I am afraid Englands great industries are a thing of the past aswell.There are many foreign car showrooms and clothes shops ,Giant supermarkets we have sold out to , but no great industries anymore for anybody to earn money to spend in them.

The rich get richer as the poor struggle to get by.

Hi Jay. I was born & raised in Newburgh NY. Carried Mail for the Walden NY Post Office for 20 years and lived in Walden for 14 of those years. It's on Rt. 208 along the Wallkill River near the Wallkill/Walden border. Any further info., I'd be glad to share.

Thanks for the info. I head into Newburgh once a week for business, I might take a ride through to check it out.
