HAINES FALLS — Elaborate Fourth of July Celebration on the Mountain Top rated, from the July 5, 1908 Brooklyn Eagle.
July 4 – “The most elaborate celebration of July 4 at any time arranged in Haines Falls is getting area these days. Not only have the NATIVES taken an interest in it, but the summertime citizens as well. The Hensonville Band (a significant, active band at that time) is furnishing the new music, and this morning the most significant procession at any time shaped passed as a result of Sunset, Santa Cruz, and Twilight Parks. Stops have been manufactured at the Twilight Inn, Sunset Inn, Santa Cruz Lodge, and the cottages of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Olcott and Matthew Dean, at every put listening to an tackle.” (Tidbit-Santa Cruz Park later merged with Twilight, and Sunset continues to be the wonderful, silent location it is normally been.)
The stated parade would have been just about 50 several years just before the Haines Falls Hearth Enterprise fashioned. Due to the fact of constrained transportation, the amount of hills in each park, and the early road conditions, it was an honor for the Mountain Top rated firefighters to pay back tribute to the parks in that way. Tannersville Fireplace Section, masking Platte Clove, Elka Park, Onteora Park, and Haines Falls, expected two huge fire organizations. Hunter had by now recognized a large, active division, and Lanesville was covered at that time by Phoenicia. Ahead of the development of an formal Haines Falls Hearth Organization, the inhabitants of Haines Falls joined the membership of one of the two Tannersville Businesses.
We also know that, simply because of more peaceful security laws and less building codes, fires ended up far more common than currently (thank God). It reminds us how smaller-city The united states could not survive without having volunteer firefighters. Prerequisites are stringent volunteer firefighters are necessary a minimum of 110 coaching hours to commence, with further annually education. The Mountain Major firefighters should also be intensely qualified in rope and rescue to deal with the substantially-to-recurrent accidents at Kaaterskill and Platte Clove waterfalls.
Thank you, firefighters, and thank you all for looking through.
