Rockland, the smallest county in the state excluding the five boroughs of Manhattan, was the center of so much of our colonial development. Separated from Orange County in 1798, the bounty of Rockland’s history surrounds us as we pass the many sites and buildings, beautiful mountains and the grand Hudson. Agriculture dominated the county through the centuries buttoday there remain only two working farms. One of these is the Davies farm located on Route 9W and 304. The library is most fortunate to have an exhibit that displays the history and beauty of this farm. Our thanks to Jan and Niles Davies, Jr. who shared their family’s memories and achievements as we celebrate Rockland History Month.
