How the Seaway Changed Waddington

After the move to its present location just past the motel on Route 37, it was a restaurant known first known as the Desert Inn and then as the White Burch Inn before being turned into apartments.

At the east end of the village, seven homes were raised four to six feet by contractors for the New York State Power Authority but they remained on the same foundation.  These homes were raised in the air, including homes owned by the McMillan, Reagan, Daley, Duffy, and Pandel families. These homes still exist today.
