east, was at one time Included as part

of Dutchess County, and was called

at different times South Ward, South

Precinct, South East District. It was

situated In a strip of territory claim­

ed by Connecticut, designated as "The

Oblong" and afterward as the "Equiv­

alent Lands". "The Oblong" became

a fruitful source of ceaseless conten­

tion and countless controversies. On

October 28, 1664, an agreement was

made whereby the boundaries between

New York and Connecticut were fixed

at twenty miles east of the Hudson

River. This arrangement was re­

sponsible for "The Oblong" which

both factions craved, but Connecticut

desired most. Controversy continued,

and It is strange to learn that the

final settlement to establish the

boundary line between New York and

Connecticut was not agreed upon un­

til 1860. All through the years the

lands of "The Oblong" were open to

purchasers with Indisputable title

guarantees, a fact which attracted

many settlers from the New England


Southeast Set Up In 1796

The following is a paragraph taken

from an Act of Legislature passed

March 17, 1795: Quote: "Be enacted

by the People of the State of New

York, represented In Senate and As­

sembly: That all those parts of Pred-

erickstown and Southeast Precinct

lying east of said line (referring to

the line defining the Town of Carmel)

of Philllpse's Long Lot, lying six miles

from the north bounds of Westches­

ter County, and running 87 degrees,

30 minutes east, and continued to the

Stale of Connecticut, shall be erected

into a separate Town by the name of

Southeast, and the first Town Meet­

ing of said Town of Southeast, shall

be held at the dwelling house of Zal-

mon Sanford in the town of South­

east;" end quote. Another paragraph

In the act provided that: quote "the

first regular Town Meeting of said

Town of Southeast shall be held the

first Tuesday in April 1796" end quote.

Thus the Town of Southeast came into

Independent existence, however, the

town continued as part of Dutchess

County until Putnam was separated

from Dutchess and was erected as an

independent county, by act of Legis­

lature on June 13, 1812.

The home of Zalmon Sanford stood

at the meeting of three roads at the

foot of Brewster Hill. As this house

was located In approximately the cen­

ter of the township, the name of the

meeting place became Southeast Cen­


Brewster Hill Road

Roads were rough, but they all lead

to or from Zalmon Sanford's house.

These roads were broken out as links

between the isolated homes of the set­

tlers, and generally were very tortu­

ous. Very little road-mileage as is

now known as Routes 6 and 22, was

in existence. There was a road con­

necting PeekskUl and Danbury, an­

other leading from White Plains thru

Somers to Pawling, but not Jollow-

ing for many miles the present high­

ways. General Washington travelled

over many weary miles of these old

roads during his campaign in the

Revolution. Owing to various reasons,

such as abandonment of original home

sites, condemnation and confiscation

of lands for railroad right-of-way,

and flooding of much acreage for stor­

age reservoirs for water supply for

New York City, most of these old

roads have disappeared. However,

there is one stretch of road leading

from the Township of Patterson, over

Brewster Hill, through Southeast Cen­

ter, out through Sodom, along the

Croton River, following All View Ave­

nue, over Turk Hill Road to the home

of Samuel Field, which has preserved

its original route.

Field Homestead, 1732-1943

Of the many early settlers who

came to Southeast from the New Eng­

land Colonies, the earliest definite

knowledge is of Samuel Field, who be­

came owner of Lot No. 5 in "The Ob­

long" in 1732, and his daughter, Jane,

is said to have been the first white

child born in Southeast. This Field

homestead is the one original pur­

chase to have continued in the same

family for the greatest number of

years, having been retained from 1732

until 1943.

Among the other families who came

as settlers about the same time as

Samuel Field were those of Paddock,

Crane. Barnum, Hall, Crosby, Howes,

Rockwell, Foster, Haviland, Penny,

Kent, Sears, Bailey. DeForest. Ryder

and Townsend. In the late 1790'sand

early 1800's came the Brewster, Meade,

Van Scoy, Brush, Sherwood. Doane

and other families. It is interesting

to note that the Paddocks, Ryders and

Brewsters are the only families now

living on at least a part of the orig­

inal purchase.

Along the road mentioned, little

hamlets soon were established con­

sisting of a few dwellings, perhaps a

church, a school, a general store, and

The Brewster Standard

Meanwhile the community was en­

larging. Mr. Borden realized that a

growing village needed a newspaper. |

This he provided. In May 1877, Mr.

E W. Addis became the Managing Ed-

lem Railroad would continue its rails itor, and in 1880 purchased the pa-


to Pawling in the near future. This

became an established fact in 1849.

Mr. Walter F. Brewster opened and

mined the iron pits in the rear of

the present Brewster House. The ore

was shipped via the Harlem R. R. He

was engaged in building, and large

quantities of material were shipped,

billed to Brewster's Station for lack

of better designation. Hence it seems

by this means the name of "Brew­

ster" was established. The land on

which the station was built was ced­

ed by Mr. A. B. Marvin, who had

long owned extensive acreage, and had

built the house which still stands

nestled in the hill on the west side

of the railroad, in 1830. However, Mr.

Brewster furnished the material and

labor and gave the passenger and

freight stations.

About this time, the present Main

Street was opened to provide facili­

ties for trie stage line of Crosby and

DeForest operating between Danbury

and Brewster to accommodate those

wishing railroad transportation. This

stage line had operated between Dan­

bury and Croton Falls previously to

the extension of the railroad.

Of course there were many houses

in the village before this time, but

the first new one built after the name

of Brewster had been acquired, was

erected by Mr. Brewster, and is now

the home of Dr. Vanderburgh. Mr.

Brewster lived there a short time, four

or five years. Meanwhile he built the

lovely Colonial mansion now the

home of the Knights of Columbus. It

is not known whether or not he ever

lived there.

In 1850 he built the Brewster House

which was operated by Mr. W. T. Ga­

ming, a showman and druggist. Later

he built the "brick blocks" on either

side of the Brewster House. In all he

built about fifty to sixty houses and

other buildings.

The first store was built by Edward

Howes about on the spot where the

Diner stands, and was opened for

business in 1850, and operated by J.

Fowler Frost, who came from Purdy's

Station. He continued in business for

five years, then sold out to Mr. Brew­


Mills and Factories

The section of the village bordering

on "The Brook", Just across the high­

way from the site of the present First

National Bank, and now owned by

the Department of Water Supply of

New York City, was once the scene of

much industrial activity. Mr. A. B.

Marvin, who owned acreage, had built

and operated mills on this property

before 1850.

In 1859 a wool-hat factory was

started by William Waring, probably

as a side issue of his hat manufactur­

ing in Yonkers, N. Y. This building

was burned and in 1874 a new firm

consisting of Smith Hunt, Col. Steph­

en Baker and James A. Peck, (grand­

father of Mrs. Howard Wheeler), re­

vived the hnt-makinn business in the

old grist mill which had been operat­

ed formely by A. B. Marvin.

At this period, there were also lum­

ber yards operated by Jarvis I.

Howes in the same vicinity.

In the Brewster Public Library may

be seen a panorama photograph taken

December 12, 1870, which shows that

the mills, factories and lumber yards

were quite extensive for those days.

All these buildings were later de­

stroyed by a devastating fire of in­

cendiary origin.

Borden Milk Factory

On January 28, 1864, the Borden

Condensed Milk Company was incor­

porated and started operating in the

eastern part of the village. This en­

terprise proved to be one of the great­

est boons to mankind, for Oall Bor­

den, founder^ labored ceaselessly and

untiringly to find a method of pro­

cessing and preserving fluid milk in

a condensed form. His efforts were

finally crowned with success. Little

change has been made in the method

of condensation and preservation, but

the form of packaging has greatly im­

proved. From this humble beginning

the Borden Company has grown and

expanded, till Borden Products are

obtainable in every State. The con-

densory furnished employment to

scores of people, both women and

men, and was a source of substantial

Income to the farmers for miles a-

round. When the, Department of Wa­

ter Supply of the City of New York

began condemnation proceedings, the

best pasturage was confiscated and

the milk producing business declined

rapidly and the old factory was closed

and dismantled. However, there are

scores of Borden plants from coast to

coast, and from border to border.

On the death of Mr. Gall Borden,

his son, John O. Borden, continued to

manage the business. John O. Borden

was a very liberal man. and through

his benefactions aided substantially in

many projects. The erecting of the

first Town Hall, the Baptist Church,

a public school, the organization of a

per, changed its name to "The Brew­

ster Standard" and continued its pub­

lication until his death in 1922.

Public Schools

Education was not neglected. The

first schoolhou.se of which there is

any record—a little red schoolhouse—

was built near the Methodist Church,

near the present Eaton-Kelley loca­

tion. With the general movement

toward the railroad station, a new

schoolhouse, two stories high, was

built a few hundred feet east of the

present Lobdell home, date not avail­

able. As the school population in­

creased, there was need of a larger

building. A site was obtained—a

large lot—on the corner of Park St.

and Marvin Ave, and a new and much

larger school was built about 1873. In

this undertaking the District wias

generously aided by J. O. Borden. Mr.

Borden's theories on education were

far in advance of the time. He pro­

vided a covered play pavilion, and for

those times, expensive and extensive

athletic recreation equipment. More

land condemnation proceedings by

New York City, at length, confiscated

the grounds and buildings. A larger

school was erected on part of the

grounds where the present High

School is located and opened in 1895.

This was destroyed by fire. The pres­

ent fine High School was opened in


Library at Mllltown

Southeast organized a Library as

early as 1825 known as Southeast Li­

brary, later as Columbian Library.

This Library was kept at Asa Ray­

mond's general store at Mllltown, near

the school, for many years and was

finally sold at auction (date unknown)

Brewster Public Library

A Public Library was organized in

1900, and housed In the second floor

above the store now occupied by Mr.

Mergardt. In 1930. the present grac­

ious home of the Library was thrown

open to the public due in great meas­

ure to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs.

Andrew Ferris, who donated the lot

and substantial financial assistance.

Five Churches Built

The Methodist Church was the first

society to build a church in .the vil­

lage, in 1837, at a cost of $1,000, meet­

ing having previously been held at the

home of Zalmon Sanford, mentioned

before. This church was located on

the site now occupied by Eaton-Kel­

ley, and was named the Heddlngvllle

M. E Church In honor of Bishop

Heddlng. Later the building was re­

moved to Brewster and now houses the

A & P and other stores. The new

church was built in 1863, at a cost of

$16,000, of which sum, Mr. Daniel

Drew and his family contributed one-

half. It was named The First M. E.

Church of Southeast by act of Legis­

lature in 1875.

The First Baptist Church was dedi­

cated on December 28, 1871, at the cost

of $15,000. the larger part of the

amount having been contributed by

Mr. John G. Borden.

The first services of St Andrew's

Eplsconal Church were held in the

Town Hall in 1872. The first church

was dedicated in 1881. The bell which

hung in the steeple was one taken

from the Hudson River Liner Dean

Richmond, and was given by Mr.

Daniel Drew. On June 13, 1901, a

beautiful stone church was dedicated,

made possible through the munificent

eift of Mr. Seth B. Howes. On July

5, of the same year, the church was

destroyed by fire. Work of rebuilding

was begun immediately, and the new

church was consecrated in 1903.

After meeting for years in the homes

of members, the Roman Catholic

Church built its first simple frame

building on Prospect St. in 1870. This

was supDlanted in 1915 by the present

stone edifice.

Although the Presbyterian Church

was ttie last to erect a home in the

villncp. it has a significant history. It

is the lineal successor to the oldest

church In the county, which was a

little log bulldins, on land formerly

owned by James Barnes, on the north­

ern stretch of Brewster Hill Road.

Built in 1745. It was later replaced in

Doanesburg in 1793. and named the

Southeast Presbyterian Church. Regu­

lar services are not held there now,

but once a year this beautiful, state­

ly edifice opens wide its doors wel­

coming all to its Annual Homecominc

Service. The Second Presbyterian

Church was ooened in Southeast Cen­

ter (Sodom) in 1854. Following the

trend of population, the present

church was opened for service in

June 1883.

Through the years chic affairs were

conducted in the name of the Town

of Southeast. Some departments still

retain that status. The Village of

Brewster, however, was incorporated

into a political entitv in 1894.

The life and history of Brewster is

so interwoven with and denendent

uoon that of "Old Southeast" that

there are many itpms worthy of men­

tion, but not presented here in chron­

ological order; just odds and ends of

The "Historical Sketch of Brewster." a paper prepared by Mrs.

Laura Voris Bailey for the meeting of Enoch Crosby Chapter. D. A.

R., held at the home of Mrs. £lbro Travis, March 13, 1944, has

given pleasure to many people who enjoy recalling events, places and

people known to their forbears and in a measure to them. Some readers

have expressed their appreciation to Mrs. Bailey and to The

Standard and requested reprints of the sketch. So to give readers easy

access to the article it is reprinted in this issue on page 2.

Many of the photographs of points of interest in the village

displayed at the D. A. R. meeting were published in this newspaper

in 1896 with several biographical sketches of business and professional

men and organizations of the village. Members of the D. A. R-.

Brewster Public Library and several homes in the village have copies

of the maps, photos and other records that will assist one who takes

up the task of rounding out into a history the piece Mrs. Bailey properly

calls a sketch. Mrs. Bailey spent many weeks collecting material

through reading and interviews before selecting what seemed to point

up the more important phases of life in Brewster, the Hub of the

Harlem Valley. The fact that her efforts have stimulated others to

look at the records of the past is a tribute to her work and to the in­

fluence of the D. A. R. in helping to preserve some of the interesting

items left by men and women who were devoted to building a community

that attracts newcomers of every walk of life.

Looking ahead for men to carry on in strengthening the homefront

we must scan the honor roll listing more than 500 men fighting

for a better way of life than that which forced them to sacrifices

few can appreciate. A better Brewster will come from the men who

face the burdens of leadership in the enterprises needed to make the

hub the place they love to call home.


By the Rt. Rev. Henry St. George Tucker

Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

At a time when so many of our dear ones are giving their lives

in defense of a righteous cause, the Easter assurance that death is the

entrance into a richer, more abundant life with the Risen Christ,

illumines grief with the radiant light of faith.

Easter brings the further assurance that their sacrifice for a righttous

cause was not in vain. By their death they open a door of opportunity.

Their death is a challenge to us to pass through that door

and by our effort and sacrifice convert the opportunity into a reality.

Their passing is a summons to us to press forward towards the goal

to which they have opened the way.

To us. Easter brings a challenge from those heroes of the faith

who have followed Jesus along the path of sacrifice. Let us also,

seeing that we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,

lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and

let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Easter assures

us that those who dedicate themselves in response to this challenge

will bring nearer the time when the kingdoms of this world shall have

become the Kingdom of the God of righteousness, freedom, and love.


From all the arguments for and against the Westchester County

parkway toll bill, which has been passed by the Legislature and is

awaiting action of the Governor, there emerges one outstanding fact:

Westchester alone, of all the counties in the State, built numerous

and costly arterial parkways at its own expense, while other counties

subsequently obtained parkways at State expense.

This left Westchester with a parkway debt of $64,000,000,

which taxpayers of the county must continue to amortize for many

years unless tolls are levied for the purpose. Such a burden on local

real estate is unfair, it is argued, because 85 per cent of the motorists

using the parkways are residents of other areas.

Westchester is particularly irked because the near-by Henry Hudson

and Merritt Parkways are being financed through tolls paid in

part by Westchester residents; also because Westchester has contributed

$4,300,000 a year in gasoline taxes to the State and received rebates

of $82,000—the lowest percentage granted to any county.

Efrort? by Westchester to obtain financial relief directly from

the State failed, due to a number of political and economic obstacles,

so the toll plan was advanced as an alternative. There is considerable

danger in the plan if it sets a precedent for widespread tolls elsewhere.

But Westchester has an unusual case, and a precedent for correctional

tolls should not necessarily lead to indiscriminate tolls.—The New

York Times.

Town of Kent

keepsie and took up the profession of

law, received honors from Harvard

and Dartmouth, occupied an instruc­

tor's chair in Columbia University,

and in 1804 was appointed to the Su­

preme Court. Later he was withdrawn

and appointed Chancellor In 1814. The

various and learned decisions handed

down by him have given him fame. It

has been said that Kent was to the

United States what Blackstone was to

Britain. Chancellor Kent was easily

Southeast's most honored son. His

memory is honored by a bust in the

Hall of Fame at New York University.

Very well celebrated was a grand­

son of the Rev. Ellsha Kent, Ellsha

Fannie Crosby

Near the birthplace of Chancellor

Kent, Fannie Crosby, familiarly known

as the "blind hymn writer," was born

After receiving her own education

she devoted most of her endeavors to

teaching others who were afflicted as

she was. She also founded a school

for the education of the blind in New

Jersey. Miss Crosby wrote more than

a thousand hymns. At some of the

ln-gatherings at the "Old Southeast

Church" a half-hour of song service

was conducted before the regular serv­

ice, the hymns of Fanny Crosby being


In her memoirs, Fanny Crosby

speaks of seeing Daniel Drew passing

her home frequently, and once he

brought her a little new-born lamb

to comfort her for one she had lost.

She said that Mr. Drew frequently

drove large flocks of sheep and herds

of cattle past on his way to markets

in New York.

Revolutionary Hero

Enoch Crosby was not a native son

of Southeast, but was. brought by his

parents to Putnam County in 1753, at

the age of three. It is a matter of

record that his parents lived in South­

east at different intervals. Enoch was

working in Danbury, Conn., when the

Revolution began, enlisted, and rend­

ered outstanding service to his coun­

try. He was the hero of J. Fenlmore

Cooper's novel, "The Spy". After the

close of the Revolutionary War, he

purchased a farm In the western part

of the Town of Southeast and lived

there the remainder of his life. He

served as Supervisor of this town


Southeast loaned many of her sons

to the several wars in which our coun­

try has been engaged. The one to

attain greatest prominence was Gen­

eral Darius Couch, who was bora In

Milltown. General Couch served In

the War Between the States, having

commanded the 2nd Army Corps of

the Army of the Potomac.

Home of the Circus

Earl Chapln May in his fascinating

•book "From Rome to Ringling" said:

edge of a Postmaster is established

when Mr. A. F. Lobdell was ap­

pointed by President Lincoln In 1883.

Mr. Lobdell served in this capacity

under Presidents Lincoln, Grant,

Hayes, Garfield and Arthur, retiring

in 1887. Mr. Lobdell had opened a

store in 1860. This business enlarged

and continued to serve its customers

until 1933 at which time Mr. A. F.

Lobdell, Jr., retired, and entered the

banking business in the Putnam

County Savings Bank, an institution

which Mr. A. F. Lobdell had been

instrumental In organizing, and which

has continued prosperously until to­

day. The store of A. F. Lobdell was

the only mercantile house to engage

In the same business over the longest

duration, In the same family.

Incidentally, Miss Marjorie Addis

and Mr. F. S. Hall have the distinc­

tion of "carrying on" In the business

of their respective fathers.

Captain Moore

Captain S. G. Moore, while not a

native of Southeast, spent much of

his life here, having married a South­

east girl, Miss Sarah Baldwin. Capt.

Moore in early life was well launch­

ed as a printer, having served his ap­

prenticeship in that vocation, and was

later in the employ of Harper Broth­

ers. Bora at Sag Harbor, L. I., prob­

ably the sea was in his blood. Indoor

life was not to his liking for he join­

ed a whaling expedition, remaining

"on board" for seven years, then join­

ed an expedition fitted out to investi­

gate the. "gold fever" in California.

After sailing the "Seven Seas" till

1856 in merchant service, he was An­

ally persuaded by the American Board

of Foreign Missions to take command

of the missionary packet "The Morn­

ing Star," launched at Boston, Mass.,

and visited many of the islands in

the Sandwich group.' "The Morning

Star" was built by voluntary contri­

butions of those interested in mission­

ary work. Certificates of stock were

issued to all contributors. The only

certificate held in this vicinity was

held by Mrs. Pauline Crosby, grand­

mother of Mayor Wells. A book en­

titled ."The Morning Star," written by

Mrs. Jane S. Warren, pays the fol­

lowing tribute to Capt. Moore: "Here

we must take leave of Capt Moore,

ment of Taxation and Finance, and

at all banks in the State. This Is the

new single-page, simplified return,

which may be used to report income

from only wages, salaries, commissions,

pensions, Interest, dividends, partner­

ships, estates, or trusts. It is esti­

mated about two-thirds of the State's

personal Income taxpayers qualify for

its use, which is entirely optional.

Rollln Browne, president of the State

Tax Commission, pointed out that

there would be no direct mall distri­

bution of the new forms because they

could not be printed in time for the

enormous job of preparation for mail­

ing—folding, inserting and addressing

of envelopes.

Neither form contains any provision

for or reference to the 25 per cent

reduction in tax, but Commissioner

Browne said this would present "ho

difficulty. The taxpayer will simply

figure his income tax in the usual

manner, he explained, and then reduce

the tax by one-fourth. The reduction

does not apply to the unincorporated

business tax.

Because of the higher State exemp­

tions, not every Federal income tax­

payer will be required to file a New

York return. Under the New York

law, you are required to file a State

return if you are single and had net

Income of $1,000 or more in 1043; if

you are married and had joint net in­

come of $2,500 or more, or, if your

gross Income was $5,000 or more.

It was emphasized that, in the case

of taxpayers who reside in the State,

none of the State income tax has been

withheld at the source. The State

tax is not deducted from wages or sal­

aries of residents.
