Haverstraw Sells Out 400th Anniversary Village Walk Through

HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. -- Haverstraw has sold out its 400th anniversary village walkthrough that will take place on Saturday, April 16.

Former Nanuet history teacher and life-long Rockland resident George Leahy will take residents on a guided tour of the historic village.

The name Haverstraw comesfrom the Dutch word Haverstroo meaning "oats straw," which refers to the grasslands along the Hudson River.

The town also played a role during the American Revolution, serving as a lookout point to monitor British activities along the Hudson.

Leahy's roots in the area date back to the 1800s when his Irish ancestors settled in the area.

Following the historic walk, guests will enjoy a three-course meal at Union Restaurant.
