Long before Henry Hudson and his crew anchored the Half Moon and followed the sound of music that led them to a group of little men with bushy beards, gnomes, the forests of the Catskill Mountains were home to these little creatures. Gnomes have a reputation for guarding Earth's treasures - no wonder they are here in the Catskill Mountains, in our back yard on Peekamoose Road, just down the road from the beautiful jewel - the Blue Hole!

The Townsman, now over 70 years old, is the local newspaper for Neversink and Denning. Since 2005 The Townsman has been published each week by Gnome Home Inc. in our 'wee' little office in Sundown! Enjoy The Townsman Legacy.

You may download copies of The Townsman for reading at your leisure and for a little fun right now – take a virtual tour of The Gnome Home!

The Gnome Home

Visit the Gnome Home Mall

The original concept of the Gnome Home was to encourage artists and crafters to have a place where they could show and sell their creations. Over the years it has grown a 'wee' little bit to include antique and vintage items, collectibles, antique and rare books from time-to-time, patterns and instructions and links to stories and other fun things. Join the Gnomes for a Virtual Tour of whimsical fantasy.
