Sing Sing Museum

The creation of a Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining has long been talked about.  The concept is being revived among those who care about Sing Sing’s unique position in the history of the American penal system.  Others are interested in development of the museum because of its tremendous national and international potential as a significant tourist attraction for New York’s Hudson Valley. Find out how you can support this important project by donating

The Unknown Palisades

The Unknown Palisades

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Historic Hudson River Towns Event
THE UNKNOWN PALISADES FREE PUBLIC LECTURE Brought to you by the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct WHEN: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9TH, 7:30 PM WHERE: DOBBS FERRY LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM, 55 MAIN STREET The cliffs and forested talus slopes of the Palisades rise to more than 600 feet above the river. In the mid 19th Century, New York builders quarried the Palisades for building materials, ship ballast, and for concrete aggregate. With the efforts of the New Jersey Federation of Women’s Clubs, the Palisades Interstate Park Commission was established in 1900, and was granted the authority to purchase and manage the land. Through images and narrative, Eric Nelsen, longtime historical interpreter for Palisades Interstate Park, brings the story of the Palisades to life: its fishermen's villages and palatial estates, the epic struggle to preserve the ancient cliffs, and the thriving beaches and campgrounds of the Depression and New Deal era.
