THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF ROCKLAND COUNTY WILL PRESENT THE HISTORIC HOMES AND LANDMARK TOUR OF HAVERSTRAW
October is Rockland History Month, and as part of its celebrations, The Historical Society of Rockland County will continue its long tradition of presenting Historical House Tours with a day in the village of Haverstraw. These tours, going back over 40 years are fund-raising events for the Society and at the same time they promote awareness of local history and our beautiful built environment.
This year the tour will take place in the village of Haverstraw, on Saturday, October 20th from 10am – 4pm and has been sponsored by Beckerle Lumber, Sotheby’s and the Town of Haverstraw. Village Historian Steven Cobb and Mayor Michael Kohut together with a team of volunteers from The Historical Society have been working together to plan a tour that will showcase village’s warmth and charm. This year’s self-guided tour offers a look at historically significant buildings of Haverstraw (including 3 on the National Register of Historic Places) together with eclectic and charming residences.
