1. Snedekers Landing Marker
Inscription.  
Early in the 19th century
the Snedeker family’s landing
on the Hudson shore below
came into use for local shipping.
In 1845 the Snedekers
established a shipyard
with marine railway for
repairing brickyard vessels
and a dock for scheduled
steamboats. The entire
yard was demolished by
fire in 1854 and abandoned.
Later, during the Conger
family ownership, it became
known as Waldberg Landing.
