History

Hardenburgh was established in 1859 from the Towns of Denning and Shandaken. The town was named for Johannes Hardenburgh, a landowner.[1]

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the Town has a total area of 81.5 square miles (211.2 km²), of which, 81.3 square miles (210.6 km²) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.6 km²) of it (0.28%) is water.

Hardenburgh sits in the western corner of the county, bordering Sullivan and Delaware counties, deep in the Catskill Mountains. Five of the Catskill High Peaks are within or along its borders.

Because of the mountains, the only direct route from Hardenburgh to the rest of the county are hiking trails over them. Any vehicular traffic must go through either Sullivan or Delaware counties.

One of those lesser mountains, Dry Brook Ridge, effectively divides the town as well. The portion north of it, in the Dry Brook valley, uses the ZIP code and telephone exchange of the nearby Delaware County hamlet of Arkville. The portion to the south, containing the headwaters of the famous Beaver Kill trout stream, is likewise oriented to the Sullivan County hamlet of Lew Beach to its south, although it contains a few of its own unique toponyms such as Turnwood, its only real road junction.

Demographics

As of the census[2] of 2000, there were 208 people, 95 households, and 57 families residing in the town. The population density was 2.6 people per square mile (1.0/km²). There were 275 housing units at an average density of 3.4/sq mi (1.3/km²). The racial makeup of the town was 96.15% White, 0.48% African American, 2.40% Asian, 0.96% from other races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.96% of the population.
