The Town of Olive is idyllic in its composition. The real estate that attracts buyers to this location is as diverse as their desires. The scenic reservoir and mountain views, ski slopes, protected forested land trails, and the fishing and paddle streams all make this diverse landscape a top choice for seasonal residents as well as those who live here year round.
The major industries of timber harvesting, tanneries, and excelsior mills, which once ravaged the mountains of Olive, have long vanished as the Catskill Forest Preserve was created in 1885 keeping forever the preserve as wild forest lands. The Catskills have been a favorite tourist destination for over 100 years. Today’s Olive is primarily residential in nature, with a large percentage of seasonal residents, and a limited number of backyard farms with victory gardens.
