Description The old GLF grain and feed mill rises in the back of this image along the railroad tracks of the Lehigh and Hudson River Railway, located in Warwick, New York.Warwick has been under human occupation for at least twelve thousand years though cohesive and relatively permanent communities of Native Americans probably did not appear until about two thousand years ago. They liked this area because of plentiful springs of fresh water and the proximity of the Wawayanda Creek which teemed with fish and fowl. The area was remarkably free of infectious diseases and though the quantity of food was small its variety was seemingly endless.Sedentary farming came very late, not that long before the appearance of European trappers and hunters in the 1650's or so. Population density increased but remained extremely low. Hunting and gathering practices remained predominant.A dramatic revival began in the mid-1960s through the leadership of a new generation of entrepreneurs like the retailer Mike Myrow and the media mogul Edward Klein. It was also sparked by the village's spectacular centennial celebration in 1967. A new civic spirit and engagement emerged. Public parking lots were built, shade trees were planted, businesses were modernized, and historic buildings and homes were restored to their former grandeur thanks to leadership from the Historical Society which helped place the village on the National and State Registers of historic places.By 1990, Warwick could again claim its name as the county's Queen Village . This remarkablerenaissance was the Hudson Valley 's best kept secret until the launch of Applefest by the Chamber of Commerce and the opening of a vibrant Farmer's Market.Composed in Photoshop
