Cindy, do you have any idea where this was in Herkimer? I wonder if "Herkimer Paper Co" is the proper name for the egg carton factory that once was in Herkimer?

I think it may have been. The picture was taken, I believe, up behind Dorf St somewhere...

This was at the end of N. Main St where it meets Dayton Pl. There was a pond as you look down but it was filled in by the former Judge, Joe Cristiano who bought the pond area.

The raceway remained until the late 70's, early 80's when the egg carton factory was finally torn down.
