See it For Yourself:
History in Rockland County
Like much of New York State, Rockland County’s history is traceable to the Native Americans who first settled here, followed by Dutch, African and British settlers. You’ll experience it for yourself at historic sites and museums open to the public, including two Revolutionary War locations and one of George Washington’s headquarters. Several historic homes built in the 18th and 19th centuries portray how early Americans lived in the Hudson Valley, while several museums highlight the impacts of the industrial age.
