About Northgate the Stern/Cornish Estate:
Northgate, also known as “the old Cornish estate” located in the Hudson Highlands State Park
north of Cold Spring, NY is a popular hiking destination in the Hudson Valley. It was first put
together by Sigmund and Dove Stern starting in the early 20th century by purchasing small farms near and around the Surprise Lake Camp. The Sterns were connected to the camp and Mr. Stern served on the board and donated land to them. After Dove’s passing in 1915 the site was leased then sold to Edward and Selina Cornish in 1917. The estate became a gentleman’s dairy farm under Mr. Cornish till shortly before his passing in 1938. The Cornish family did not use the site much after Edward Cornish’s death, and in 1958 a fire destroyed the residence. Central Hudson purchased the estate to build a power plant in 1963, but heard the public wishes that it not be built and it was sold and given to New York State parks to be part of the Hudson Highlands State Park in 1967.
