Description

Hudson River Railroad horse stables, located at 489 Main St, in Poughkeepsie, United States , was founded in 1870 and the first elephant arrived in 1871.


Comments / picturesJust east of the station was an old stable where the horses were kept. With a prime location on north Main Street between Clinton and Cherry Streets, the unit functioned as an indoor parking lot for the horse-led carriages that trekked locals from one corner of the city to another. The lengthy car barn comprised a large part of the interior, while an adjoining stable and feed room offered a sheltered home for the horses.

The rear stables were also sometimes used for newly imported elephants, like the 1871 import from Ceylon.
