"History is an inspiration for the present and for the future. We ought to retain a physical, living record of how people overcame challenges, because that gives us confidence to overcome challenges in our time. That's what preservation means to me. If you take the artifacts away, the setting away, and all the places away, how can you communicate with that past?"       [citation]

1915100 Years - Volunteering For You 2015

Affordable Access to the Hudson River
Ossining's waterfront destination

Sunset, by Eagleton

"My father painted this picture of the view from the deck of the
Ossining Boat and Canoe Club. He painted it on the spot. Using
the handrail on the deck as his easel, he captured the colors of the
sunset just as they were. He finished the  painting and we just sat there
in silence. A truly sublime moment that would have been ruined by words. 
I hope that my daughters will have the opportunity to experience sunsets like
this at OBCC in the future.  This would be a great legacy to pass on to them."
Peter Eagleton

In past century and the next one,
we are committed to continuing our
role on the waterfront, volunteering
to provide everyone in the Ossining community
with affordable access to the Hudson River,
at no cost to taxpayers.

"I Know, up on top you are seeing great sights,
But down here at the bottom we, too, should have rights.
