Ramapo Heights/Pine Grove Lakes
Groundbreaking - February 23, 1939

This photo was taken on February 23, 1939 at the groundbreaking of Pine Grove Lakes (then known as Ramapo Heights).  The ceremony was attended by our founder and first president, Senator Robert H. Gittins (sixth from left); Sloatsburg's first Mayor, David Henion (standing in the cab with the shovel); and Mr. Gittins' brother (third from the right). Thanks very much to the Sloatsburg Historical Society for lending us this photo for scanning, and to Harrison Bush for confirming the identities of the people in the picture.  Scroll down to see the photographer's stamp on the back of the original photo.  Click here for a full-sized version with all the interesting details.
