Shantyboat at Waterford New York


Listen Now to the WAMC Public Radio story:


A recreated mid-century shanty boat is traveling down the Hudson River in search of stories.

“A Secret History of American River People” is a project by a California-based artist Wes Modes.

Modes took WAMC’s Southern Adirondack Bureau Chief Lucas Willard on a quick tour of the homemade houseboat as it was docked in the Saratoga County town of Waterford, New York.
