One thought on “Ward Carpenter Survey of the Lower Croton River, 1871

  1. Great old map for this old student of Crotonville history. The (Van Cortland) “tenant’s house” I remember as Palmer residence was likely demolished soon after Rockefeller bought Manor; Oscar Haines may have been a commercial fisherman related to fisherman Walter Haines I remember living there in 1940s; wharf shown near bridge was, in my day, “Slater’s Landing,” where land surveyor / historian Arthur Slater moored a house boat. Several other notable featuresalso shown on map.
    – Sincere thanks for your on-going historical contributions, Tom Neff
