OMG…….the memories flow. My first visit to Round Hill was in the fall of 1970. We drove down from New Paltz for a Halloween Party. As we approach the driveway you could see the burning torches illuminate the full front facade from Rte 208.. The long driveway was wretched with dirt and stones but the anticipation was relentless. I was all of 18 at the time. As you could imagine, a young blue eyed light haired young man with a 32″ waist, gave me more attention then needed. Drinks, cigarettes, and opportunities abound.I had to pay for almost nothing. My friend Craig took first prize that night for costume. He wore a simple emerald green flowing gown with matching turban. If memory serves me after a few months the operators of the club tried to encourage all of us to go to Aruba. As the story goes, they went with all the money made and paid no bills to their creditors. Round Hill was closed. Then,in 1972 a name change. It was now Mr G’s at Round Hill and the main house and cabins were hopping with excitement. I lived in Middletown the summer of 72 and spent much of my free time there. I had a brief affair with the main guy who managed the sound system. He came up from from Jersey with his lover who, unfortunately, spent to much time hung over. So, I was his replacement that summer. So many people, so many friends. I barely remember any altercations between anybody. Seemed love was truly in the air. I can still envision the main floor for dancing and the grand piano in corner of the room used for shows. I am now 65 and have lived in Poughkeepsie over these past several decades. I have driven Rte 208 South to try and find remnants of the old main house. Another friend of mine and I are trying to pull together a retrospective of all the bars in the Hudson Valley. We were not able to find info. on Round Hill until today. It finally came to me that the second time around it was called Mr G’s Round Hill. That led us to this site. It was a wondeful part of my coming out years and I would not have changed a thing.
