Overview
Ossining commands a position high on the banks of the Hudson River, at the edge of Westchester County, New York. Perhaps best known as the location of Sing Sing Prison, Ossining is rich in history and in personal memories. The history and memories come through clearly in this book of exceptional photographs. Ossining Remembered focuses on the heart of the town, from Main Street out to the river. Included are images of places that made downtown Ossining the dynamic community it once was—the theater, the cigar store, and the bakery. Also featured are vintage photographs of the riverfront mansions and estates, the numerous educational institutions and churches, and, of course, the famous prison.

Most of the photographs in this collection come from the archives of the Ossining Historical Society Museum. Others have been loaned by local residents. Through these images, members of the society portray the town as they knew it, lived in it, and loved it before much of it was erased by shopping centers and parking lots. A valuable and entertaining source of local history, Ossining Remembered captures the vibrant spirit of the community and celebrates the people and places that helped shape its remarkable past.
