Isn’t Gingerbread Gorge-ous!

By Julie Paschal and Christina Steffanus

This Gorge-ous gingerbread creation showcases the topography and natural beauty of one New York’s iconic state parks. In the early 1900’s, Robert H. Treman, a local banker, merchant and former acting governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, purchased property in surrounding Enfield Glen Falls in Tompkins County to preserve the land and conserve the areas water resources. In 1920, Robert and his wife Laura donated the land to New York State so it could form several state parks including Robert H. Treman State Park. Today, the park is a 1,110-acre stretch of land near Ithaca, NY and features picturesque gorges, six spectacular trails, and 12 breathtaking waterfalls, including the 115-foot Lucifer Falls.  

On behalf of the Rockwell staff and the Corning community, we want to thank all of our participants this year for bringing so much incredible talent and heart to their Environments Examined creations. 

Special thanks to Ellen and John O'Hare for their support of this special community exhibition.
