The Raquette River, the second longest river in New York State, starts on the slope of Blue Mountain and ends at its confluence with the St. Lawrence River. On the 174 mile trip the water flows over 24 dams powering 20 hydroelectric generating facilities. Local residents believe that the Raquette is the most dammed river east of the Mississippi. This course is in conjunction with the current exhibit at the Potsdam Museum.

Mary Jane Watson is a member of the St. Lawrence County Historical Association and serves on the editorial board of the Quarterly.

Mimi Van Deusen is Museum Director at the Potsdam Museum.
