There's a celebration in order this week! Dutchess County hotspot, Beacon, is celebrating a big birthday.

The Beacon Historical Society posted on Facebook that the southern Dutchess town has a birthday on May 15th. So how old is Beacon turning? Age is nothing but a number, but they share:

Our city was founded on May 15, 1913 -- making this our deca-centennial celebration! Hats off to our historic community and all who have called it home through 110 years of progress.

110?! Beacon, you don't look a day over 45! The Beacon Historical Society added a handful of photos of Beacon's past, take a peek and let us know if you recognize any of the locations and what they are now:

Of course, you have the infamous Mount Beacon Incline Railway that is, obviously, no longer in service that used to bring folks to the top of Mount Beacon where a casino used to reside. If you hike the mountain today, you will see the tracks and parts of the railway's engine room still standing.
