The Barnsider Tavern invites you to stroll through Sugar Loaf in the year 1798 with thanks to Donald M. Barrell for his book Along the Wawayanda Path, The Black Dirt Distillery, Eliza Benedict Hornby’s Under Old Rooftrees edited by Sue Gardner, and Rebecca Orchant of the The Huffington Post. Sugar Loaf has a long colorful history. The village is on the “Wawayanda Pathe,” a very old native Indian trail that runs parallel with the southern boundary of the Wawayanda Patent, once claimed by Rapigonick, Wawastawaw, Moghapuck, Rumbout, Clauss, Chuckhass, Cingapaw, Oshasquemonus, and Quilapaw native Americans.
