1. The Old Parsonage Marker
Inscription. For almost a century the Clarkstown Reformed Church shared the services of its pastor with the church at Tappan. In 1834 a full-time pastor was called and this building, on a site across the road, was purchased for him. It was enlarged in 1835. Replaced by a new parsonage in 1894 this home was moved, first to a nearby location subsequently taken by the thruway in 1954, and then to this site.
