My parents owned a summer home in Shohola, and my father and his buddies used to go down to Rohman's for a cold one. I remember old man Rohman smoking his cigar behind the bar. I used to play the pinball games, and when they came out, the video games. They had an Atari Pong game. The jukebox had the tune "Springtime in Shohola" on it.

I also remember picking up my grandfather some time in the 60's at the train station. He took the passenger train out from the city, back when the used to BE a passenger train. I don't remember exactly when the station was torn down, but since the 1980's recovery said to omit "opposite the east end of the Erie station", it was before that.

Somewhere in my childhood stuff I probably still have a rubbing of this mark. It was the first one I ever noticed, and probably was the beginning of my fascination with maps.

This one was a tough find with the railroad station gone. The posted coordinates were less than 100 feet from what I recorded at the site, but I was initially distracted by a set of steps leading from Route 55 up to Rohman Road. Once I realized that I needed to be up on Rohman Road itself, the situation started to make more sense. It became a matter of finding the correct set of stone steps, which I did a moment later. The mark is now on the second step from the bottom (I suspect that the road was resurfaced and the bottom step was paved over) in the steps just beyond Rohman's Historic Tavern, which was already quite busy at just 1:00 in the afternoon. The disk is in good condition, especially for being so old. This is another of the turn-of-the-century Albany marks (see also NA1433).

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
