The town will hold a public information session on Monday March 30 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. to solicit public input on ideas for utilization of the public space at the former Mid Orange Correctional Facility. Public lands include the 400 acres of NYS DEC designated wetlands, a pavilion, a beautiful event space, baseball field and several access points to Wickham Lake which is the 128 acre town owned passive recreation lake. The meeting will be held at the Warwick Town Hall, and we look forward to your input.
There is a great effort underway to preserve the John Hathorn homestead, just off of Rte. 94 South. John Hathorn was a delegate to the first Continental Congress, a congressman, state legislator and town supervisor. He also led the Warwick Militia against the attacks by Joseph Brandt that culminated in the Battle of Minisink, and he bravely led the survivors safely back home. A non-profit, called the Friends of John Hathorn, has formed and would love to have your support. If interested please contact them at http://hathornhouse.wordpress.com.
