Erected by the
Rockland County Society
To commemorate the opening of the
Nyack Turnpike
Between Nyack and Suffern

The first direct highway across the County of Rockland and the first important public work undertaken therin by private enterprise.
The Nyack Turnpike Road Company was incorporated by act of the New York Legislature April 17th, 1816. When a new charter was granted, April 20th, 1830, the following men - the projectors and founders of the Nyack Turnpike were appointed trustees:
Tunis Smith   John Green   Peter Smith   Lucas Acker   Edward Suffern   Isaac Lydacker   Jeremiah H. Pierson
Under this charter - renewed in 1853, 1873 and 1883 - the turnpike was maintained as a toll road unntil 1893. It became a part of the county road system in 1894 and was designated as a state highway in 1911.
At this place, the modern thoroughfare follows the course of an Indian path of prehistoric days.

I Saw The Marker

Readable, and the stone is intact -but it could certainly use a good cleaning.
