I went to the Town of Warwick offices today to pay my water bill.
Posted on the wall near the Tax Collectors office was a yellowed notice behind glass protection. It was a notice from 1877, listing locations in the town where taxes can be paid.One location was The Demerest Hotel, a red brick building which still stands and contains quite a few small businesses.Also, there are live Demorest/Demerest in the town and other areas of Orange County, NY.
It was signed by the Tax Collector, ?? Demorest The ?? are mine because I don't remember Mr./Ms. Demorest's initials.
I could try to photograph it with my digital camera, if it is of interest to anyone.
