A HISTORICAL STUMPER

Each month I will pose a historical question about something in Rockland County and two weeks later, I will give the answer OR if you email me, I will send you the answer. Sorry there are no prizes!!

The Historical Society of Rockland County is featuring the fabulous exhibit, "The Tappan Zee Bridge: Transforming Rockland County" until the end of October. This exhibit, under the direction of noted author and professor, Dr. Roger Panetta is filled with photos, blueprints, oral histories and an actual film that shows the making of the bridge. This is an exhibit not to be missed! The opening of the bridge changed the county from an agricultural to a highly residential and commuter-based county. The museum is at 20 Zukor Rd across the road from the Kennedy Dells Park.

The question is: What day was the bridge officially opened for use?
