The lifelong Rocklander Art Gunther spoke about what it was like growing up in Spring Valley. He described how Spring Valley has changed; his fond memories of grade school, high school, and shopping downtown; and Spring Valley's history as a resort commuity. Art also talked about his career as a journalist with the Journal-News, as well as his very popular column, "The Column Rule."

The December episode of Crossroads of Rockland History was sponsored by the Town of Ramapo, Supervisor Michael Specht and the Ramapo Town Board. History is important in Rockland. That’s why the Town of Ramapo supports "Crossroads of Rockland History" and the Historical Society of Rockland County.
