Hancock is "The Gateway To The Delaware River". The East and West branches of the Delaware River converge at Hancock from opposing directions at the base of Point Mountain to form the headwaters of the Delaware River which eventually flow to the Atlantic Ocean. Atop Point Mountain is a mausoleum that was built by Dr. Frank Woolsey in the 1940's to house his remains. The mausoleum lies empty today and is now abandoned. Dr. Woolsey was never buried there.


   The Delaware river, along with the manystreams, lakes and ponds that surround Hancock are teaming with brook and brown trout, perch, bass, bullhead and eel providing what many call... "the best fishing in the UnitedStates." The river also provides summer passage for canoers and rafters "running the rapids" to Equinunk, Skinner's Falls, Fishes Eddy and points as far south as Port Jervis and New Jersey. We will be happy to arrange a fishing guide for your stay at French Woods.


   In the 1960's, New York Route 17 was designated most scenic highway in the nation and thousands of people ventured to the Hancock area each year to marvel at the Autumn foliage which is usually is at its' peak around the first week of October. Autumn is closely followed by large game hunting season in November. Hunters from as far away as 500 miles come to Hancock to bag their trophy white tail deer. Many Black Bear have also been taken in the Hancock area in recent years as well as pheasant and other small game. The fall time of the year also yields a generous maple syrup and maple butter producing season. Maple syrup from Hancock is shipped all over the world and rivals the famous Vermont Syrups.

  Built in the early 1930s to link Port Jervis
