Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season! 

Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores: 

  • The Lenape
  • The Dutch
  • Treason of the Revolution
  • Slavery
  • The Nyack Turnpike. 

New for 2019 (April 24-October 27):

Henry Varnum Poor seemed to turn everything he touched into art. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in the house and studio he designed and built on South Mountain Road in New City
as a place of comfort for his family. How it was conceived, constructed, and enjoyed are illustrated through archival images and documents. Contemporary photographic images from the past decade help shed light on the present condition of this important artist's home and studio and beg the question: What does the future hold for Crow House?

Thanks to the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, Elizabeth Felicella, Caroline Hannah, Julie Scholz, Chuck Stead, and Karen Zukowski.
