Franny Reese State Park is located in Highland, Ulster County, NY. Click here to see a map and information about the park. According to the Franny Reese State Park Master Plan and Environmental Assessment dated December 2008, "Ruins of at least seven former structures and historic buildings were identified on-site including two cistern buildings, a main residence or hall, several outbuildings, stone cottage, and a windmill. Each structure exhibited varying levels of deterioration, and some are collapsed. The windmill, though still standing, appears unstable and its structural stability appears to be significantly deteriorated. However, despite deterioration, these cultural resources add inherent value to the property as remnants of past human occupation and land use."
