The Keeper’s House in Dobbs Ferry, built in the 1840s, served as a residence for the supervisor of the original Aqueduct. It has been transformed into a Visitor Center that features an exhibition on the history of New York’s water supply system.
The exhibit raises awareness about the historic Croton Aqueduct, and provides perspective on current problems related to land use, water, the environment, and public policy.
Laurel Marx is the Creative Director and Graphic Designer, working in collaboration with Laura Compagni, Exhibit Developer, Lawrence Langham, Exhibit Desginer, and Audrey Nieson and Greg Smith of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation.
