Remembering Bert Dahm

Rockland County lost another great one as Bert Dahm passed away last week.   I had just received a letter from him encouraging support for Heritage of West Nyack and their work with the Vanderbilt Onderdonk Traphagen property, so he was working tirelessly for historic preservation right until the end of his life.  He sat down for an interview with us back in 2014 and we're so glad that we have his memories to share with the community of growing up in West Nyack, how the Clarkstown Central School district emerged from a collection of small schoolhouses, the story of Rockland's vanished airports and much more.
