The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Pleased to Announce the Continuation of 

HISTORY IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD

A series of historic day trips within Rockland County focusing on Houses of Worship, Cemeteries, and Pipe Organs

The fourth year in this series begins in June and will take place in the historic Town of Haverstraw. It has been made possible in part by generous contributions from Central Presbyterian Church, the Town of Haverstraw, and the County of Rockland/I Love NY.

Trip #1: Historic Houses of Worship, Saturday, June 4, with stops at:

  • St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church
  • Congregation Sons of Jacob
  • St. Thomas AME Zion Church
  • Fairmount Baptist Church
  • Central Presbyterian Church

Trip #3: The Pipe Organs, Saturday, November 19. We will experience the instruments as their organists present classical, sacred and popular selections at stops including:

All three trips start and end at Haverstraw Village Parking Lot, located at 40 New Main Street, across the street from Haverstraw Village Hall. Each trip will conclude with lunch at a local restaurant (we’ll let you know which one before the trip) and a return bus ride to the Haverstraw Village Parking Lot.
