Old / Disused Village Names

It has come to my attention, that some of the old names for villages along railroad rights of way have become lost over time.
Therefore, I am compiling a list of names I have come across on maps that are no longer used, with a relative present day location.

old name new name location applicable railroad notes
Middletown Center Margaretville D&E renamed 1850 (prior to any railroads)
Clarks Factory Dunraven D&E renamed (prior to any railroads)
Lumberville Arena D&E renamed ca. 1910?
Fox Hollow Shandaken R&O, NYK&S, U&D
Griffins Corners Fleischmanns R&O, NYK&S, U&D absorbed by Fleischmanns incorporation 1913
Clovesville between Griffin's Corners & Solitude R&O, NYK&S, U&D
Solitude between Griffin's Corners & Dean's Corners R&O, NYK&S present day group of structures: Peabody's Pets, Ray's Sports Shop,
Zullins Outdoor Furniture, J&S Auto Parts
Deans Corners Arkville R&O, NYK&S
Spruceville between Margaretville & Kelly Corners R&O, NYK&S, U&D Hidden Waters Road / SR 30
Moresville Grand Gorge R&O, NYK&K, U&D



Viewers, please note:

   The information listed on this webpage, is provided as a courtesy and for concise reference.  

It is compiled from various sources, including official railroad documents,
as well as many books and historical documents and publications.

 I have strove to confirm information amongst several different sources,
but with information of this age, accuracy cannot be confirmed in some cases.
Some data is subject to discrepancy and is suspect;  
and therefore as such, it should only be used as a reference.

 Please feel free to contact me with any corrections, errors or suggestions or additions.
Thanks!
