1. The Glenwood Hotel Marker
Inscription. This building existed in the late 1890s as a rooming house for workers in the mills of Sloatsburg until around 1950. The ground floor of the building was converter into a restaurant, circa 1904 by Henry & Kathleen Tobin, offering open-air dining on the large veranda style porch in addition to an elegant main dining room. The Glenwood flourished as a restaurant for fine dining for nearly fifty years - until the opening of the NYS Thruway diverted travelers away from Orange Turnpike.
