Richmond Hill

The brook along Harriman Road. An unfortunate event in the history of the estate occurred on September 1, 1938 when road workers laid new tar down on Harriman Road. 54 prize water fowl were killed and 56 sickened when tar seeped off the road into the estate's half-acre pond. George Washington Hill's secretary claimed that three barrels of tar were removed from the brook that day.







Graves of Lorna (1912-1919) and Dyke. Family pets, I presume.

 

A metal-frame pergola and chimney, near the tennis court.



The tennis court, at the highest elevation of the property, and one of the highest spots in the village. 
A once-fine view of the Hudson River and the Tappan Bridge is now overgrown.
