The Town of Hancock is "The Gateway To The Delaware River". The East and West branches of the Delaware River converge at Hancock from opposing directions at the base of Point Mountain to form the headwaters of the Delaware River which eventually flow to the Atlantic Ocean. Atop Point Mountain is a mausoleum that was built by Dr. Lester E. Woolsey in the 1940's to house his remains. The mausoleum lies empty today. Dr. Woolsey was buried there only a few years, until the structure could not be properly protected and all the bodies that were entombed there were removed. The Delaware river, along with the many streams, lakes and ponds that surround Hancock are teeming with brook and brown trout, perch, bass, bullhead and eel providing what many call... "the best fishing in the United States." The river also provides summer passage for canoers and rafters "running the rapids" to Equinunk, Skinner's Falls, Fishes Eddy and points as far south as Port Jervis and New Jersey.
