Patterson Businesses


The Towners hamlet was one of Patterson's major population centers, especially while it was a junction of the New York Central's Harlem Division and the New Haven's Maybrook Line. The commercial area included a blacksmith shop, a meat market, hotel, grocery store, and hardware store at the turn of the 20th century. Rumors of a reservoir project and cessation of passenger rail stops in Towners contributed to the decline of the Towners community as an important commercial area.

The 1867 Beer's Atlas shows the Towners Station businesses. The roads shown are the present NYS Route 164 and Bullet Hole Road.
