Lippman Park

The BBQ is free to all Town of Wawarsing and Village of Ellenville registered Republicans as well as our like-minded supporters who may be registered in a different party. We know we do not win without the help of other party members.

It is our way to say thank you for taking the time throughout the year to help get our candidates elected.
It’s to give us all a chance to meet and share ideas and thoughts with our like-minded neighbors, but especially in a one on setting with our elected representatives and candidates running for office who will also be present.

Talking isn’t required. If you’re not big on chatting just come out and have a bite to eat. You earned it.

Whether through voting at the polls and/or town caucuses, distributing literature, getting signatures, making coordinated phone calls, word of mouth, driving others to the polls, volunteering at events, or financial contributions we thank you all.

Hope to see you there.

Town of Wawarsing

Nestled in the Shawangunk Mountains, our name means “a place where the stream bends”.

At the turn of the century an early hotel named Yamma Farms where owner Frank Seaman hosted guests like Harvey S. Firestone, John Burroughs, Henry Ford, and Tom Edison in a lovely Japanese replica located in Napanoch, NY. In addition we are blessed with a variety of seasonal farm stands that provide a fresh variety of fruits, vegetables, baked goods and gifts for visitors and residents alike.

Cragsmoor, home to the world famous Ice Caves Mountain, and now the Sam’s Point Preserve, is a quiet, reflective residential area for several illustrators and artists such as E. L. Henry, Charles Curran, and Frederick Dellenbaugh, who traveled with the Powell expedition to the Grand Canyon. Many handcrafters live in our area who have small stands or shops providing hand made pottery, jewelry, needlework, etc. for the shopper in all of us.

Meandering through our Town is the historic D&H Canal, so important to the early development of our region. La Grand Botsford, artist of life on the D&H canal, has his paintings on display at the D&H Canal Museum. The canal has been linked to the local Railroad Station and Museum in Napanoch with a Liner Park designation creating a great visitors destination.

World renowned Schrade Cutlery, Channel Master, VAW Aluminum, the Pogo stick, and Apocalypse Snow Board companies once provided hundreds of jobs to the area. While these giants are gone their imprint is still on the area.

Must sees are Ellenville Knife works, the Shadowland Theater, Hunt Memorial Building, Stone Church, various fishing streams, Shawangunk Golf Course, Cragsmoor Museum, Ellenville Public Library and Museum, Greenfield Park Museum, Sam’s Point, Cragsmoor Stone Church and Museum, Joseph Y. Resnick Airport and Ellenville Regional hospital.

Annual events include the Wild Blueberry and Huckleberry festival, the annual 4th of July parade, and our Sunday Farmer’s Market.
