New Milford History Uncovered In Goldring Building

Workers demolishing the interior of Slone's Pharmacy uncovered this terrific wall of subway tile.  Sources say that this was either from First National Food or Merchant Grocers.  Gary Goldring said that he is going to uncover the rest of the tile and preserve it.  The last picture is of Park Pharmacy, predecessor of Slone's.

Gary Goldring Is Building A Treat For Downtown New Milford

As we speak, there's a lot of work being done on the building that last housed Slone's Pharmacy on the west side of the Green, the Northwest corner of Bank Street and West Main Street, to be exact.

The property was purchased recently by Gary Goldring who has taken a great deal of interest in improving Downtown New Milford and he's doing some great things to enhance our Town.

Take a look at the artist's rendering of the final product.  Look closely at the detail.  Then look at the pictures that I took today and you'll see some of the detail emerging from under layers of block and siding.  See the pointed caps?    This is going to look great.  I am looking forward to seeing that clocktower.  It will be a centerpiece for generations and will rival the one at Grand me at the Clock anyone?
