 Bloomingburg, New York (Wikipedia). Bloomingburg, previously Bloomingburgh, was the first county seat of Sullivan County. It prospered, first, as a center of commerce along the Newburgh–Cochecton Turnpike, then as a railway town serving vacationers in the mountains. Many guesthouses in the village were not rebuilt after the devastating fire of February 1922, and the village has been primarily an agricultural center ever since.
