River Hook Roadshow

River Hook supporter Frank Manicione has initiated the River Hook Roadshow event, an appraisal fundraiser on October 14, 10am – 4pm at the Old Stone Meeting House.

Five professional appraisers will assess the value of family treasures for $5 per item. You might be surprised at the value of some of your items.  All proceeds of the River Hook Roadshow will go to support projects at the River Hook preserve. 

“The most interesting antique we have found at River Hook is the “one-horse open sleigh” of Hester Haring, who lived most of her life at River Hook, said Village of Upper Nyack Mayor Karen Tarapata. The sled was found in the stone carriage house.

The public is urged to attend upcoming fundraising events and to follow River Hook on Instagram @friendsofriverhook and Facebook at Friends of River Hook to keep up to date.
