“Warwick in History” – The following was taken from the GREENWOOD LAKE STORY.

In the early 1930’s, Joe Jackson and his wife Margaret came to visit Greenwood Lake. Mrs. Jackson’s mother ran a boarding house for actors and show people, known as Mother Rialto’s, which was situated on Cascade Road.

Joe Jackson was a trick bicycle comedian known as “Shoeless Joe”. He later teamed up with Jimmy Duranta and Eddie Clayton.

While here in Greenwood Lake, he decided to open a swank supper club at a site he had found which was an old barn at the intersection of the New Monroe Road and the Old Monroe Road. The barn itself was a personality with a story dating back almost 100 years.
