[ARCHIVED] Irvington Historical Society - The Founding of Irvington: Creating A Thriving Village From Farmland

A Zoom Presentation by Chet Kerr on Sunday, May 17, 2020, at 2 p.m.

In 1849 Justus Dearman and his family made the decision to sell their farm with the hope of creating a completely new Village.  Building on the arrival of the Hudson River Rail Road,
in ten short years the rolling pastures of the Dearman Farm became a thriving community of homes, small businesses and industry.  This talk will highlight the individuals who made this possible, and the steps they took to create the foundations of the Village of Irvington as we know it today.
