Letter of Recommendation for the Historical Society of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown

CNEHA has submitted a letter of recommendation on behalf of the Historical Society of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown for an NEH grant proposal that would provide funding to archive and curate the Requa Archaeological Collection, and to make the contents of that collection available online for researchers. The Requa Collection includes material culture from and archaeological documentation for the only intact archaeological example of a tenant site from New York’s Manorial Period (1664-1775).

CNEHA voices opposition to proposed job cuts at the New York State Museum, including the positions of the State Archaeologist and Director of the Cultural Resource Survey Program, the Curator of Archaeology, and the Curator of Historical Archaeology.
