History of Van Cortlandt Park

Saturday, November 25, 2017

Learn how Van Cortlandt Park has been transformed over the past 500 years of human settlement. Once a Native American village, the parkland was converted into an eighteenth century swampy country estate before being cleared for a military training ground and passenger railroad service.

Join the Urban Park Rangers on an exploration of trails and artifacts that unveil this hidden history of Van Cortlandt Park.
