Governor Kathy Hochul announced last Friday that several new parks and buildings to be included in the state’s Register of Historic Places, including a hotel in the Fleischmann’s area of the Catskills.

State and National Registers listing can assist owners in revitalizing properties, making them eligible for various public preservation programs and services, such as matching state grants and state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.

 The hotel being designated, called the “Spillian”, was originally home to Max and Johanna Fleischmann in the 19th Century. It’s very close to the famed Oppenheimer’s Regis Hotel, where many Jewish vacationers stayed in the summer.

Also included in the updated register is the  H. M. Quackenbush Factory, in Herkimer, Herkimer County. The factory was built in the late 1800s and was a prominent manufacturer of metal products invented by local entrepreneur Henry Marcus Quackenbush. Among the most popular was the spring-loaded, handheld nutcracker.
