Web Site of the Month

  www.castlegarden.org 

This web site offers free access to an extraordinary database of information on ten million immigrants from 1830 through 1892, the year that Ellis Island opened. Over 73 million Americans can trace their ancestry to this early immigration period. Castle Garden, today known as Castle Clinton National Monument, is the major landmark within the Battery. From the 1855 to 1890, the Castle was America's first official immigration center, a pioneering collaboration of New York State and New York City.

HISTORICAL HOUSES

The Jacob J. Blauvelt House, located on Zukor Road in New City, stands majestically on the grounds of the Historical Society of Rockland. This farmhouse was owned by the Blauvelt family from 1741 until 1970 when the society acquired it. Its street location is equally historical as this road went from New City, spilled into today’s South Mountain Rd and then traveled the foot of the mountain into Haverstraw.
