Tabernacle Church of Christ (I think)

I’ve been to Beacon a few times, but have usually limited myself to the walks down by the river. This time I decided to take a walk along Main Street.

It’s a long main street – much longer than the other Hudson River towns I’ve been to. It features a number of galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and even a theatre (The Beacon Theatre). One end borders on what seems to have been an old industrial area: Some of the old industrial buildings are in poor shape, but a number have been converted and renovated for other uses including the Round House at Beacon Falls, which is now a hotel, and conference center. I’ve eaten in the restaurant (Swift) twice and on both occasions the food was excellent – and the location near the falls on Fishkill Creek is hard to beat.

All in all a nice walk in very pleasant town. I’d like to go back sometime and try some of the restaurants and coffee shops.
