Houses on the Land: Wallkill Valley Land Trust's 9th Annual Historic House Tour
This year's tour explores the fascinating early history and industrial and cultural heritage of Rosendale and surrounding hamlets - High Falls, Cottekill, Binnewater, Lawrenceville, Bloomington and Eddyville - from its early agrarian Dutch settlements through its evolution into a prosperous industrial boom-town in the nineteenth century, to its recent resurgence as a thriving artistic community. The building of the D & H Canal to transport coal from Pennsylvania to the Hudson River and the discovery of natural Rosendale cement, prized for its exceptional durability, and later the Wallkill Valley Railroad, shaped the town and brought international prominence to the area.
Volunteer and take the tour for free! Please email: josemmL09@gmail.com
