The wooden shutters, window boxes, and courtyard next to the gurgling creek, all come together to create an old world European charm. Dating back to the late 1700's it is believed to have been the first horsedrawn firehouse in Piermont built by the Erie Line Railroad and used by the village people sometimes in the 1850's as the Village Hall.. The Firehouse is located on the Sparkill Creek, whose tidal waters flow to the Hudson River, cascading from a man-made waterfall that passes under the oldest bridge in Piermont. The creek was once used as a canal for barge traffic and you can still see the curious little draw bridge, also called a lift bridge made by the King Bridge Company in 1890 just downstream behind the post office. It is the only example of its kind and is considered a local treasure.
The back of the house was used to film a movie in 1916, in which the creek was turned into a Venetian Canal, for the box office success "The Hungry Heart". Just a short walk brings you into the business section of Piermont, where in 1980 Woody Allen filmed the "Purple Rose of Cairo".
There are numerous events, fairs, and farmer's markets all summer long, with an array of good restaurants, to suit every palate and buget. Reminiscent of the'60's coffee houses you'll find live entertainment at the "Turning Point", where you can still see entertainment greats such as Melanie, and Richie Haven, to mention a few.
Piermont has had it's share of history, being the starting point for the Erie Railroad, which spanned 447 miles and ended in Dunkirk on Lake Erie. There was also a secondary railroad line which is now the bicycle path.
In the early 1900's it became a resort town well known for its boating and bathing. A walk out to the Pier will reveal its use as an embarkation point for Europe-bound troops during World War II. Now the factories are gone, as are the railroads, but the community still attracts boaters, fishermen and tourists, as well as actors and people working in the television and movie industry.
