Keeping the memory alive and breathing new life into the property!
The Catskill Game Farm closed in 2006 – it was the first privately owned zoo in the United States, operational from 1933-2006 and housed over 2,000 animals. Among their collection included giraffes, rhinos, pygmy hippos, capybara, and many more. The zoo itself is approximately 150 acres with 3.5 miles of paved walkways and 130 structures. It is now often visited by people for the sake of nostalgia, urban exploration and/or photography.
