Livingston Manor is located along the Route 17 artery that cuts through the northern portion of Sullivan County. Catskill State Park, borders the town to the north. Originally part of the Hardenburgh Patent, Livingston Manor was named Purvis until mid 19th century, and although it was never part of the famous Robert Livingston Manor, it was renamed because some of his relatives settled there and were instrumental in the growth of the town.
Present day Livingston Manor is a quaint eclectic upstate village with shops, eateries and art galleries. The famous trout stream the Willowemoc runs directly through the center of town, making a modest promenade along Main Street. Area attractions include The Catskill Fly Fishing Museum, a facility that “honors the heroes of the sport and expresses the lore and lure of fly fishing.”
The Catskill Arts Society is located on Main Street in Livingston Manor in the C.A.S. building. They have various exhibits and classes and events throughout the year.
Other attractions in this area are the abundant trout streams and lakes, a DEC fish hatchery which produces 115,000 pounds of brown trout annually, and a working old fashioned cider mill with hiking trails and waterfalls.
To the south is Shandelee Mountain, along Debruce Road. Homes are tucked away on larger parcels here, the terrain is a bit hilly with a mix of wooded and open farmland. Low taxes and seclusion make this area desirable.
To the north into Catskill State Park is the Lew Beach area. This is a fiercely protected tract bought by a Rockefeller descendant in the 80’s who pledged to keep this area forever wild. Houses here are substantial without being ostentatious, and are hidden away on large parcels. There are a few well known celebrities who have chosen this quiet spot to get away from it all.
