In 1909 and 1959 Westchester, along with the rest of New York State, celebrated the European discovery of the Hudson River by English explorer Henry Hudson for the Dutch East India Company, as well as Robert Fulton’s accomplishment of using steam power for travel on the river. In 2009 it is fitting that we recall the previous celebrations as we mark the Hudson-Fulton Quadricenntenial.
