5. Tiffany Windows at the Central Presbyterian Church
As a reflection of Haverstraw’s notable history and architecture, the Central Presbyterian Church on Hudson Avenue features stained glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany (known for his work in New York City) and an inlay ceiling of American Chestnut, a wood that is now almost extinct. The church moved to this spot following the 1906 Haverstraw landslide (continue on to learn more about this man-made disaster).
The church, which is still active, will host the Shades Repertory Theater on the lower level until this fall when the organization moves to the Garner Arts Center. It also hosts the annual concert for the Rockland County Concert Band.
