& IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY INVITES YOU TO...

Croton Historian, Dorothy Pezanowski and The Croton Historical Society wish to announce the opening of their new exhibit at the Croton Historical Museum on the first floor of the Municipal Building. 

The exhibition is entitled “GET READY FOR AN EARTHQUAKE - THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW US ROUTE 9, THE DESTRUCTION OF CROTON LANDING." 

Museum curator, Thomas Simone, revealed that the  show will include a portrait gallery of pictures of Croton before the construction of the new Route 9, a display of  ephemera from businesses displaced by the road, and a big screen multi-media presentation which seeks to recreate the old Riverside Avenue Community.  The presentation also includes aerial photographs of Croton before the road was built, maps showing the properties taken for the road, construction  pictures and images of  Route 9 today.

The public is invited to an opening reception on Sunday, September 20, 2015 between 2:00pm and 4:00pm.  Light refreshments will be served. 

The Croton Historical Museum is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am till 5:00pm at the Municipal Building.

  1. Urban renewal took down three beautiful buildings from the 1930's in Peekskill back around the same time. They were art deco with classic lines.
