Many of the transcriptions found here are now in published form. They have been published by the Orange County Genealogical Society (in Goshen, New York). Volume 3 includes my Volume 3 and Volume 5. Volume 4 includes my four parts of New Milford history. There is a planned Volume 5, which will include my Volumes 6, 7, and 8, Part 1, which is about 250 transcriptions. They can be purchase through the Genealogical Society. Just Google them and print out the order form. Or they can be purchased from the Warwick Historical Society. They are also on sale at the gift shop at Baird's Tavern. I would like to thank the Genealogical Society and Dan Burrows for their efforts. Started a new blog for images of Warwick. Go to:

Warwick Historical Papers Volume 6, Part 2

This is a transcription of an article published in the Warwick Advertiser, dated July 31, 1902. The listing of businesses and individuals was actually the phone book for Warwick at that time. The phone numbers have been left out.


The Warwick Valley Telephone Company have joined with the Highland Company and purchased the Conkling & Strong private lines between Warwick, Bellvale, Greenwood Lake and Monroe, The Warwick Company buying to Greenwood Lake from this end, and the Highland from Monroe. This gives the Warwick Company the Greenwood people on their line and opens up a big territory for development.

The deal gives Warwick a connection with Highland System, and will enable patrons of our lines to talk to Monroe, Chester, Blooming-grove, Washingtonville, Vail's Gate, Central Valley, Cornwall-on-Hudson, Highland Mills, Turners, Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, Kingston and many other places in Orange, Dutchess and Ulste counties. Connections will be made with the Orange County system at Goshen, which will give us Middletown and Pine Bush, and in a short time Port Jervis and the northern end of the county will come into the combination, thus giving the independent telephone companies what their patrons have long desired - a comprehensive county system.

Cut out this list below and subititute for list previously published. The new names are included. (Ed. Phone Numbers are not included.)
