Filmmaker Begins Hickory Ski Center Documentary


Founded in 1946, Hickory Ski Center in Warrensburg is a hidden gem ski area that was closed in the early 2000s and then revived by a board of locals and media. Now, Hickory Ski Center is receiving a documentary.

Filmmaker Ian McGrew is a Kingston native who found the desire to create a documentary on this historic and often overlooked mountain. The documentary is set to release during this upcoming fall.

This is exciting for locals as McGrew is a five-time Emmy Award winner and skied local mountains when he was younger. He first heard about Hickory when support was needed and the Facebook post went viral online. McGrew understands the mountain's incredible history and hardships yet keeps his eyes on a hopeful future.

A New Business Is Brewing in Warrensburg

If all goes according to plan, a new business will be heading to Warrensburg by this August. Bandstand Brew Works will be the first brewery to open in Warrensburg. The owners of the future brewery have been crafting their own beer as a hobby but thought to pursue something larger.

In a Post Star article, one of the owners said, "Then we decided, why not start a brewery? Warrensburg doesn't have one. I think it would be a great thing for the town."

The name of their business reflects the Floyd Bennett Memorial bandstand in town to honor the aviator. They plan on having open air dining and carrying community events and specialty nights once their doors open. Their following is growing on social media as people are eager to know more about Warrensburg's first brewery.
