Bristol Stomp originate here?

There are two accounts in several places on the Web as to the origin of the dance in the Dovells' 1961 hit, Bristol Stomp. One is that it started at Van Buren's Danceland on Wood St., and the other is that it began at dances at the Goodwill Hose Co. #3 on Mifflin St. I would think that the same teens went to both places and danced it, although I read that Van Buren's had a wooden floor that you could really stomp on.
