Washingtonville (V)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. Majority of the population is concentrated in the southern portion around New York City; the state is often regionalized into Upstate and Downstate. New York is the home of Ellis Island, where many immigrants in the early 20th century arrived in the United States.
Washingtonville was first settled in 1731. The growth was slow for the next seventy-five years. In its earlier years, Washingtonville was called Matthews Field, even before it became known as Little York. Washingtonville grew after the New York, Lake Erie and Western Railway built its branch through the village in 1850. Even though the railway tracks have been removed, the remains of the railroad building is located behind the present day Agway Store.
Washingtonville is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in New York worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of New York.
