The September 2019 “Crossroads of Rockland History,” featured an interview with George Hoehmann, Supervisor of the Town of Clarkstown who spoke about the current state of historic preservation in Clarkstown.
He discussed municipally owned open space, parkland and historic sites. He also provided updates on the two major historic preservation projects in Clarkstown: The Traphagen Historic Site (West Nyack) including the Talman-Budke House (18th C. Sandstone Dwelling) and the Vanderbilt-Trapahgen House (c. 1820); and the Cropsey Barn (New City) which is part of the Cropsey Community Farm.
