Beginning Wednesday, July 5, the Warwick Historical Society will open many of Warwick’s historic properties such for self-guided tours.
Some of the destinations will be Baird’s Tavern, the Old School Baptist Meeting House and the Lehigh & Hudson River Railway Caboose.
“As we walk the streets of Warwick the history will unfold with every stop along the tour,” Lisa-Ann Weisbrod, the historical society’s executive director, said in the press release detailing the program. “The town will transform before your eyes as the railroad brought prosperity of new culture and ways of life to the area.”
• Visit the second floor of the Hasbrouck Barn and step back in time to Dr. Bradner’s office complete with old chloroform bottles and medical apparatus of years gone by.
• Hop aboard the Lehigh & Hudson River Railway Caboose and learn about it’s dangerous past.
All the properties are lined with history: stories and memories of the times that have formed the village we occupy now.
