Rockland County is the southernmost county on the west side of the Hudson River, part of the NYC Metropolitan Area of New York State. The county’s population, as of the 2010 United States Census, was 311,687, increasing to a 2019 Census estimate of 325,789, making it the third-most densely populated county in the state outside of New York City (after Nassau and Westchester counties, respectively), while also the smallest county by area in the state outside of New York City. It has five towns and nineteen incorporated villages, with many unincorporated villages and hamlets. Its name is derived from “”rocky land,”” as the area has been appropriately described.
The Dutch settled the area around 1675 to escape “city life.” Rockland County became a key position for General George Washington’s Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. George Washington had headquarters for a time at John Suffern’s tavern, the later site of the village of Suffern. In the decades following the Revolution, Rockland County became popular for its stone and bricks, requiring quarrying in the Hudson Highlands which many later believed should be set aside as a preserve, despite many unsuccessful attempts to make it so. Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park came into fruition in 1910 when Union Pacific Railroad President E. H. Harriman’s widow donated his lands to the state, and by 1914 it was estimated that more than a million people a year were coming to visit the park. Rockland remained semi-rural until the 1950’s when the Palisades Interstate Parkway, Tappan Zee Bridge, and other major arteries were built. The new wave of suburbia also transformed the county, tripling the population by 1990.
Natural beauty is one of Rockland County’s most enticing attractions. Because of its federal designation as a Preserve America Community and Rockland’s Open Space Preservation Program, about a third of the county is designated as parkland. There are over 2,500 acres of parks filled with sparkling lakes, wildlife, and opportunities for hiking, swimming, boating, ice skating, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, and horseback riding. Popular state parks include Bear Mountain State Park, Harriman State Park, and Nyack Beach State Park along the Hudson River, with trails connecting to Rockland Lake State Park. The county and its towns also host numerous public and private golf courses.
