Will Anyone Ever Know the Real Story Behind the Leatherman?
The Leatherman circa 1885.
He roamed the mountains and woods from the Connecticut River to the Hudson River from about 1858 to 1889, clad head-to-toe in a homemade leather outfit.
He lived in rock shelters and would make regular stops in the local towns for supplies, including a stop on what is now Buckout Road. He is believed to have been French Canadian and is buried in nearby Sleepy Hollow.
