About GBCC’s Sullivan Renaissance
Our beautification plans include flowers, banners, planter boxes and new signage along Route 97 – all designed to create a more welcoming atmosphere that will encourage travelers on Route 97 to stop, shop, have a meal, and visit local attractions in the five hamlets of the Town of Highland — Barryville, Eldred, Highland Lake, Minisink Ford and Yulan — and in Shohola and Lackawaxen. GBCC’s Main Street beautification project is also supported by a grant provided by The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development and funded through Senator John Bonacic’s office.
The GBCC now has a home! The Barryville Information Center is a historic building which was once originally a filling station in our area. Originally called the “Lord Baltimore” station, it was subsequently owned by Amoco. The Center now features displays highlighting local history and provides information about all our area businesses, services, attractions, recreational facilities and community organizations.
We plan to continue this ongoing community conversation to help us all work together to strengthen the local economy while preserving everything we love about this very special place.
