YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The sixth annual Historic House Tour of Yorktown will take place on Sunday, May 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Visitors will get a chance to see the Hallock’s Mill Farmhouse, a Tompkins family farmhouse which started out in the 1700’s as a tenant farm of Van Cortlandt Manor, learn about the Henry Street Settlement’s Echo Hill Camp for girls that was located in Yorktown from 1900 to the 1950’s, and visit an Alpaca Farm.
Gina Miller, Co-Chair of the Historic House Tour Committee said that every tour is unique.
"It really is amazing that Yorktown has houses that date back to pre-Revolutionary War time. This event enables us all to learn about Yorktown’s rich history as well as interesting things our town has to offer today.”
