Introduction to Mount Ivy, New York
Mount Ivy History
Mount Ivy is a hamlet in the Town of Haverstraw, in Rockland County. Rockland County was originally inhabited by the Algonquian-speaking Indians. In 1609, Henry Hudson sailed along the Hudson River thinking that it was the legendary 'Northwest Passage', and the river was eventually named after him. The first Europeans to settle in this area were the Dutch. Rockland, which was once part of Orange County, received independent status in 1798.
