n 1783 during a trip to inspect forts in upstate New York, a party of military officials lead by General George Washington took a brief respite at Halfway Brook, near what is now the Glens Falls-Queensbury town border. In recent years, this historic waterway has been subjected to littering, although many routinely enjoy it for its scenic aspects. Last week, a group of Warren County Soil & Water Conservation District employees took time out of their workday to pick up trash along the brook so others can enjoy its natural beauty.
