About this title


Mount Pleasant has deep American roots going back to the Revolutionary War, when local tenant farmers filled the ranks of General Washington’s Continental army. For years, travel to New York City was difficult, until the arrival of the railroad in 1846 allowed easy transportation to lower Manhattan. In 1893, John D. Rockefeller Sr. began buying land in Pocantico and built his classic Georgian mansion. The massive Kensico Dam in Valhalla was completed in 1917 to satisfy the growing thirst of New York City. In 1927, Rose Hawthorne, the daughter of writer Nathaniel Hawthorne, completed the Rosary Hill Home to care for the unfortunate. The following year, Dewitt Wallace and his wife Lila moved to Pleasantville to launch the production of Reader’s Digest. Through photographs, Mount Pleasant remembers these historic moments.

About the Author:

George Waterbury is president of the Mount Pleasant Historical Society and also serves as the historian for the town of Mount Pleasant. His wife, Claudine Waterbury, is secretary of the historical society, and both are lifetime Mount Pleasant residents. Bert Ruiz is the society’s lead trustee and a financial advisor for Edward Jones.
