James Bremner ( aka Friends VP, Bob Kornfeld ) welcomed the community to the beautiful house where he lived from the mid 1800s to his death in 1872.

On a sunny June afternoon Keeper James Bremner told of his duties as keeper of this section of the Aqueduct, how he kept the water flowing as it traveled from the Croton Dam to the final reservoir at 42nd street. Maybe he anticipated that his home would one day be a National Historic Landmark making the entire community swell with pride.

Of course he might not have recognized his old home after the eautiful rehabilitation work stimulated and financed by the Friends and documented photographically by Tom Tarnowsky and Elisa Zazzera.

Beginning this Saturday, June 4, the Keeper's House will be open for drop-in visitors on weekends from 10am to 4pm.

Come by, pick up a map, drink some water, chat with our docents, and hear about our plans for permanent and temporary exhibitions.

The Keeper's House is convenient to the Dobbs Ferry stop on Metro-North, and a perfect place to start a walk to Lyndhurst or Untermyer Gardens.
