Schoharie: The Little Village That Could

Written By Editor on 6/28/13 | 6/28/13


With the two year anniversary of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee's devastating flood of the Schoharie Valley fast approaching, nothing but amazing can describe the recent developments inside the Village of Schoharie and how good the epicenter of Irene's destruction looks today.
 
A visual reminder of how high the flood waters rose in August, 2011.
Over the past couple of months residents of Schoharie have watched as Creekside Sports, the Hive (a nice little antique shop on Main Street) and excitingly over the past couple of weeks into this weekend, long relocated county offices are finally moving back into the remodeled county building - bringing a combination of new businesses and old friends into the community.

And if the business related developments weren't good enough, the Village looks absolutely stunning. The Courthouse stands tall in the middle of Main Street - the Parrot House standing lively to one side and the remodeled county building to the other - and all but a handful of store fronts are currently occupied with growing and quaint hard working small businesses.
 
True, Schoharie still suffers from decreased residency, due to the destruction of homes and property, and the long shuttered grocery store still haunts motorists as you approach from Middleburgh on Route 30, but the unbelievable resiliency of the Valley's hardest hit residents is nothing short of incredible and awe inspiring.  
 
The only question is: what is next for Schoharie? The little Village that could and will rebuild from the devastation of that horrific storm.
