VILLAGE OF ELLENVILLE, AND TOWN OF WAWARSING, NY DETAILS:

ABOUT:

There are two separate municipalities for Warwarsing:
The Village of Ellenville and the Town of Wawarsing.

The Village of Ellenvilleis part of the Township of Warwarsing. It's a diverse community nestled in the foothills of the Shawangunk (Shon-gum) Mountains and is located at an intersection where natural beauty and history merges with the 21st Century.  

As the "Gateway to the Gunks," Ellenville today is a diverse community with a world class library and museum, a variety of successful youth programs, hundreds of acres dedicated to outdoor recreation, along with an array of manufacturing facilities.

An old D+H Canal and O+W Railroad town, Ellenville capitalized on turn-of-the-century transportation and combined it with the growth of the "Borscht Belt" as it emerged in the Post World War II economy.

The Town of Warwarsing consists of the Village of Ellenville, plus the hamlets of Cragsmoor, Dairyland, East Wawarsing, Greenfield Park, Kerhonkson, Lackawack, Napanoch, Pine Bush, The Cape, Spring Glen, Ulster Heights, Warwarsing and Yagerville area.

The township offers a variety of outdoor activities: fishing at the Rondout reservoir, 10,000 acres of parklands for hiking, and a recreation area that includes hang-gliding for the adventurous.

Founded in 1806 and originally named by Native Americans, Wawarsing means where the streams wind. Its location, between the Shawangunk Ridge and Catskill Mountain range, provides a picturesque setting.

The township has a long history of manufacturing and warehouse businesses. Streams supplied the hydro-power to drive new industry. The D&H Canal provided transportation of raw materials along with finished products and the O&W Railroad brought improved access for tourism.
