Colonial Road Corridors: Opportunities for Growth
Primary roads ran up and down the Hudson River, with a
secondary road branching off through Goshen and Warwick.
Milestones were placed along major roads in colonial days, to help guide travelers and
to compute distances for postmasters.  Warwick still has several visible.  This one is on
Oakland Avenue, and marks the distance to Newburgh.  The known Warwick markers
are in a red stone that is not native to Warwick. This suggests the possibility these are
among the milestones planned or inspired by Benjamin Franklin when he was
Postmaster General.
