Another Historic Shinglehouse Building To Be Demolished


Thought I'd pass this along. Known as Anderson's Tavern for many years and most recently the Shinglehouse Saloon is on it's way to be torn down. The building was purchased by Acorn Markets and the rumor is that they're making room for additional gas pumps.

It's sad to see go....one of the oldest buildings in town.

Yeah for greed. Buy a near landmark and sell it for nothing but personal gain!

It is sad because it won't last just like everything else they have had in the acorn store (now) should keep it as a landmark( the saloon) its shinglehouse its to small for a truck stop

Obviously somebody never left shinglehouse or the bar. If you havr ever went anywhere there are ttuck stops in much smaller places. Agreeing though as i do not want to hear big rigs idling when my family is trying to sleep.

Just like the lot in Ulysess...tore down 2 businesses ...walla we now have a fenced in mud hole to look at...and in Genesee (great big Genesee) we have a truck stop,that may I add helps keep our gasoline prices almost as high as New York's.

I'm truly surprised that the town residents let this happen. Chalk it up to apathy I guess.

It's a bar not a landmark. The only ones that are going to miss it are the drunks.

I wonder who was the lucky person that bought the "original bar" that they had advertised for sale? It would be great to see it somewhere else and not lose a piece of our Shinglehouse history !!

I was a big fan of that place when the midgets were bartending. You people do know that Acron markets are a local company that provides work with decent benfits to local people. They'll do a lot more for the community then the bar will ever have.

People need to relize the difference between a old building and a landmark. The only real land mark left in this town is may be the baptist church. Come on people get real. Things come and go. I totaly agree with the person who said the onl truly going to miss it were the drunks.

I just love it when so many people get upset when others do what they wish with their own property. There may me many things about this property, but the most important one is this.....its not yours, and don't forget it.

I'm sorry, but as a Shinglehouse resident, this IS NOT A LANDMARK!
It was a bar, come on people! I can also confirm that Acorn has indeed purchased the building. That being said, it's now theirs, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. It is good to see Acorn taking an interest in our community.

I support Newton's in Shinglehouse and most often get my gas there. Keep the small business owner going!!

I think there are some local banks with other "landmarks" for sale in Shinglehouse at a discount, if anyone is interested.

Once the Gov sells off the booze business, the drunks can have a nice place to gas up and buy booze at the same time.

. If the townspeople were so worried about the bar closing, then why didn't they band together and buy it themselves from the last owners? Oh, maybe because owning it would break you!! The cost of licensing and insurance alone would probably get you really quickly. Chuck Anderson himself said, "Everyone sees the money coming in, but noone sees the money going out."

It was a bar, true but I think the owners that bought it from the Anderson's knew all along they would be selling it. Not just the drunks will miss it. I used to go and drink my coffe in the morning and shoot the breeze. Also as a child when it was Newton's used to go there and play. At least take out the bar, it does have some history and place it at the legion or at Mickey's place.

no one but the "drunks" will miss it? Come on!! Maybe you stopped in to have a beer or maybe only soda, that makes you a drunk? The food there was excellent and alot of hard work went into that establishment. Things do change and we must change with them. Sorry to see it go.

I'm not from the area, but I noticed a bar for sale on pennswoods.net the other day. The actual wooden bar, top and bottom portion. FREE FOR THE TAKING. Just needs removed. Could it be the one from this place ? It's listed under restaurant supplies.

I think Shinglehouse has plenty of other run down old buildings if you still want one.

It may be your watering hole but it isn't a landmark. I'm tired of looking at all the decrepit old buildings in Shinglehouse when I drive through there.

I don't care how low on gas I am I'd rather coast into a NY state gas station on fumes than be in Shinglehouse longer than I have to.
