History Photo of the Week: Ice block cutters out with their tools. Although it looks like they are by a stream, we're guessing it's near Masten Lake, as that's where all the other ice block cutting photos we have were taken.
History Photo of the Week: One of the Wurtsboro Post Offices, around 1900, we're guessing. Is this the building across the street from the Village Park, where the Yoga Studio is now? Looks similar but without the front porch.
History Photo of the Week: This week's photo has multiple elements. First off, it's a photo postcard with a 'latch" which opens up to a series of smaller photos. The picture itsef (with a 1905 patent notice for the latch and photo) shows the original Wurtsboro train station.
History Photo of the Week: A bit too early for January, but here's some Spring plowing (can't get here soon enough!). Not sure if this is in Wurtsboro, but are fairly certain it is a valley photo, given that it's by Koonz. Any ideas?
Happy 2018! Today starts our winter hours. During the months of January and February, we are OPEN 10-5 Thursday Through Tuesday.
Until March 1, we are CLOSED on Wednesdays only, to allow us time to renovate and help restock the store.
History Photo of the Week: A colorized photo of the corner of Sullivan Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, showing the bandstand, Dorrance House Annex and the Arlington House, which became the State Police Barracks and is now the site of the Wayne Bank.
