Gittins Fire - 1940

This article from the Rockland County Leader, dated December 25, 1941, reports on a house fire in the Ramapo Heights (now Pine Grove Lakes) section of Sloatsburg. The home was owned by Etta Gittins, one of the original Trustees of the Ramapo Heights Club. According to Harrison Bush, Ms. Gittins was well-to-do and owned a lot of property in the Ramapo Heights development. Although the article says the house was owned by Etta "Gillins," typeface was set by hand in those days, and we believe this was a misprint.  Thanks very much to Mayor Carl Wright for contributing this article! If anyone else has documents or information to share about the history of Pine Grove Lakes, please .
