CHANGES COMING TO OUR STREETS
Sue Paterson Way
On March 3, 2020, the Marbletown Town Board passed a resolution to honor Sue Patterson by authorizing the addition of "Sue Patterson Way" to the street signage currently identifying "Second Street" in High Falls.

It is a fitting tribute to Sue who owned The Barking Dog antique shop located on Second Street where she and her faithful dog, Daisy, walked daily.
