14 New York Properties Nominated For Register Of Historic Places
More than a dozen historic New York properties across the state have been nominated for recognition on the State and National Register of Historic Places.
This year's lone Mid-Hudson Valley nomination comes from Suffern and the Richard Pousette-Dart House & Studio. The building served as the house and studio of Pousette-Dart, one of the pioneering figures of mid-century Abstract Expressionist painting, between 1959 and 1992. It was originally erected somewhere around 1916 as the carriage house for a large country estate called Valley Head Farm.
Properties are nominated by business people, municipalities and organizations from communities across the state. More than 120,000 are currently on the list which provides benefits and protections to the property.
The question is, what Hudson Valley landmark do you think should be nominated in the future?
