Wave Farm respectfully and humbly acknowledges the past, present, and future indigenous peoples on whose ancestral lands Wave Farm and our radio station, WGXC, operate and broadcast. The Mohicans named themselves “The People of the Waters That Are Never Still” following their arrival along the Mahicannituck, the “great-ebb-tide-river” also known as the Hudson. The Mohicans stewarded this land, over many generations, in dynamic communication and interaction with diverse indigenous peoples including the Haudenosaunee Mohawk and the Munsee Lenape. Mohican descendants today live in communities in Ontario, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma. For further information on Mohican history and the contemporary community of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, please visit mohican.com
Mapping to "Wave Farm / WGXC Acra" rather than our physical address is highly recommended!
Directions to Wave Farm / WGXC Acra From the New York State Thruway (I-87): Take Exit 21 (Catskill/Cairo). Turn left at the stoplight after the toll booth. Follow ramp right toward Cairo. Continue on Route 23 West for approximately 12 minutes. (Or... From the Rip Van Winkle Bridge: Heading west, cross the bridge, and continue on Route 23 West for approximately 15 minutes.) When the road forks with 145, bear left (toward Windham) continuing on Route 23 West. Go straight through the stop sign following the fork. From the stop sign, Wave Farm's entrance is 3.6 miles on the right. The entrance is a black top driveway (across from a gray house with a green roof); you will see a brown wooden wall with a Wave Farm sign (as pictured). Shortly after turning in, turn right down a stone driveway which leads to the Study Center. (Note, if you are coming from the East on Route 23, don’t be misled by another property’s recently placed mailbox that has a higher number than ours marked on it, yet is actually placed before our entrance.)
