Proceeds of the HSRC Holiday Programs benefit the preservation and education efforts of the Historical Society of Rockland County, a nonprofit educational institution and principal repository for original documents and artifacts relating to Rockland County. Our mission is to acquire, preserve, and exhibit objects, buildings, and sites that reflect the history of Rockland County and the Lower Hudson Valley and to research, document, promote, and publicize the county’s rich historical heritage for the people of Rockland. The HSRC’s headquarters at 20 Zukor Road, New City, New York, consist of a four-acre site featuring the 7,200 square foot History Center; the historic Jacob Blauvelt House; and the post-and-beam Historic Barn and Carriage House.

The HSRC is open, during exhibitions, events and programs, on Wednesdays–Fridays, 10 am–5 pm, and Sundays, 12–4 pm. Library research and tours of the Jacob Blauvelt House are available by appointment by contacting (845) 634-9629 or emailing info@rocklandhistory.org.
