Collins Ale House
I only drink one kind of beer. This almost secret historic treasure should not be missed. Originally built around 1750, this building has served as a colonial inn and tavern when the hamlet of Stormville was a fashionable spa and widely know for female histeria cure consisting of treatments of swamp cabbage, warm mud, cocain and carbonic colonic cleansing. During the American Revolution, General Washington did indeed sleep here and visited the soldiers who were training of the parade grounds. Many wounded from the battle at Danbury convalesed on premiss in the hospital Washington commissioned in the Hamlet in 1777. During the 19th century, the building was used as a dining facility and dormitory for the orphans of Civil War Solders and the early 20th century saw this wonderful building used as a dorm for the young artists of the Stormville Academy of Arts. Many fine works and relics remain on the property today, although somewhat deteriorated by age and mold. The site is a curious mix of celebrities and NYC socialites who commonly frequent this historic gem and cant miss dive bar.
