From Benedict to Bruce: Something for Everyone on Orangetown Bus Tour

From Benedict to BruceSee famous houses, churches, and points of interest in the Town of Orangetown on a bus tour on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Orangetown’s Historian Mary Cardenas will be your guide to explore everything from the place of Benedict Arnold’s confinement to the early recording studio of Bruce Springsteen.

This tour is a reprise of the sold-out Orangetown trip sponsored by the Historical Society of Rockland County  in 2012.

The trip departs at 9s from the rear parking lot at The ’76 House in Tappan and returns at 12n for lunch. The price is $70 per person (HSRC Members) or $75 (Non-Members) and includes bus transportation, the guided tour, and a salad, choice of entree, and dessert at The ’76 House.

Prepaid reservations are required and can be made online at or by contacting the Historical Society of Rockland County by phone at 845-634-9629 or email at

The registration deadline is June 14, 2014. Refunds will only be given if space can be filled by another guest prior to trip. A waiting list will be compiled, and available spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Only those who have made full payment can be accommodated.

The HSRC is open five days a week (Wednesday-Friday, 10a–5p; Saturday–Sunday, 12–4 pm) during exhibitions, events and programs.
