The Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, celebrating its 50th anniversary today, is one of the largest nature centers in New York’s state park system. It sits on a 600-acre peninsula of Wellesley Island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. It has 8 miles of hiking trails as well as 7 miles of cross-country ski trails during the winter months.
The center has been described as a hidden gem, but perhaps even less well known is the namesake of the center and how it got its name. Christina and Kelly turn back the pages of history to find out.
