Description The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.Winston ChurchillThe High View or Bloomingburg Station was a busy station on the eastern side of the Catskill resort area served by the O&W. The stucco mission-style station built around the turn of the century was and remains as one of the most beautiful stations on the railroad. The graceful arches over the waiting room doors led into two separate waiting rooms with dark woodwork and a fancy brick fireplace.After the railroad closed, the station was a home for farm animals and poultry until purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Darmetko several years ago.The station is currently undergoing restoration as a private home. Unfortunately, the doors, windows and interior woodwork, including the ticket counter braces carved into the silhouette of the O&W herald, were almost completely stripped away and burned in the fireplace by vandals. The fireplace, while suffering some damage to its decorate relief brickwork, has survived.Photographed in High View, NY, USATextures courtesy of Texturetime of Flicker
