Wallkill NY Real Estate

Wallkill real estate is all about 'Gunk living! If you’re new to the Shawangunk hamlet of Wallkill, you can’t help but notice the Wallkill River, gorgeous countryside, Shawangunk Ridge vistas and the pretty cow with the yellow-petal neck-ruff on the Welcome to Wallkill sign. She’s Elsie, Borden Dairy’s logo and a reminder that Wallkill owes its existence to John G. Borden. Borden’s dairy has left the neighborhood, but no matter how long he’s been gone, the hamlet of Wallkill will always remember John G. Borden and how the town began as a real estate success story!

It was Borden's father, Gail Borden, who patented condensed milk; John, his youngest son, was the first to put liquid milk in bottles, spent 11 years as president of the company and went looking for a place to build his dream farm. He found it at the top of a hill in what he eventually named Wallkill. The farm extended at one time to about 3,000 acres, and to the bustling village that grew up around it Borden donated land for a school and built workers’ cottages, walking paths and 40 miles of roads, amongst other beneficent acts. 

After his death, John’s daughter Marion continued his philanthropic ways; one of her projects was the Wallkill Library and Borden Library Park out front, these days full of colorful picnic tables, benches and chairs. Up on Borden Circle is the big, shingled house Marion built for herself alongside the home she grew up in; today it, the homestead and the last surviving barn of the Borden era are the site of the School of Practical Philosophy. Marion Borden donated land for boys’ and girls’ camps to Wallkill and in her will left a trust for the library, money for the new high school auditorium and other generous gifts. She left the farm to the Masonic Order, who sold it in pieces to other farms. Wallkill's still known for farming today.

Wallkill NY History & Lifestyle

Local historians have been digging at Wallkill’s roots, and the Shawangunk and Gardiner Historical Society began a Borden Day in 2004, giving tours of the old homestead and Marion’s mansion and rides around town to see some of the homes Borden built for his workers. In 2006 a proposal for a development on one of the last original Borden fields raised the anger and interest of locals, and soon “Save Borden Farm” became a popular cause.

These days, the residents of Wallkill are working together to create a community everyone will appreciate; one that honors the past and looks to the future. Vision of Wallkill “improvement group” is working to bring attention to the hamlet. One of their projects is Art Along the Sidewalk, featuring painted cows throughout town, exhibits, workshops, a Beauty of Wallkill art contest and a silent auction of plein-air paintings. They also sponsor the annual Weekend of Wallkill in September at the library and town hall and a town-wide yard sale. The Wallkill Women’s Club are deeply involved in community service and have been for more than 100 years. Here’s a link to all the Shawangunk community groups - there’s a great deal of long-standing home-town feeling here.

Not only volunteers are working for the hamlet of Wallkill’s future. A desire for a new Wallkill, a destination Wallkill, so to speak, is manifested in the Town of Shawangunk’s relatively comprehensive plan. They’re envisioning the hamlet as “a vibrant, attractive, and well-kept community. The Town will have a bustling and lively ‘main street’ along Wallkill Avenue and the gateways into the hamlet with restaurants, small businesses, food stores, entertainment uses and family-friendly gathering spaces, mixed with residential uses…. A connected riverfront walk along the Wallkill River will link, through a linear park, to a farmer’s market, cafes, restaurants… and other gathering spaces attractive to local residents and visitors alike.” Mixed into the new Wallkill will be some of the beautiful original buildings from before John Borden laid out Wallkill, including the oldest house in the hamlet, the Andries DuBois house. 

West of the hamlet there’s a gorgeous old building with large words painted on it, J.B. Crowell & Son Brick Moulds, which is on the National Register of Historic Places but still exists on the banks of the Dwaarkill for the same purpose as it did when it began around the time of the Civil War; they make hardwood brick moulds and various other things out of wood. Even before Crowell bought it, there had been a mill there for the past 100 years; the history of the place is fascinating.

Besides getting out and about to see the historic sites, there are plenty of parks where you can amuse yourself in Wallkill, like the 5.5-acre Popp Memorial Park, the only park in the hamlet with Wallkill River access and designated “Riverwalk” along the banks of the river. The oldest park in the hamlet is Garrison Park, noted on the 1883 map of Borden’s dream village as a “school park,” which he donated to Wallkill. Many folks enjoy the Walden-Wallkill Rail Trail along the former Wallkill Valley Railroad corridor.

There are two golfers’ meccas in town, Turtle Creek Golf Course and Town of Wallkill Golf Club. Down the road is Osiris Country Club. Riders will find loose boxes at Juckas Stables, North Wind Horse Farm and Saddle Brook Farm Animal Rescue.

Wallkill residents’ pride in the hamlet’s history combined with forward-looking community involvement can’t help but keep Wallkill growing and changing in a positive way and make real estate there an investment worth considering.
