Pest Control – To Help Resolve Your Bug Problems
Since Regal Pest Management services the Village of Tarrytown each day, we have learned a bit about the area… Today Tarrytown has a population of approximately 11,500 and is situated on the eastern shore of the Hudson River. It is twenty-five miles north of New York City; in an area of rolling hills, called the Tappan Zee, (Tappan for the Tappan Indians who once lived in what is now Rockland County, and Zee meaning sea in the Dutch language).
Tarrytown, is a village with rich history and some local legend. The village was immortalized in Washington Irving’s 1820 story, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.
A great deal of the town’s history began when Frederick Philipse, a wealthy businessman, began buying land in 1681 and became the largest land owner in the Tarrytown area. He controlled 22 miles of land from the Croton River, south to Spuyten Duyvil, and from the Hudson, east to the Bronx River. He eventually acquired 90,000 acres and built his main home and gristmill in the town of Sleepy Hollow.
This was his main distribution center for grain on the Hudson. Frederick Philipse was also responsible for building The Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow in 1685. When Frederick died in 1702, his son Adolph became “Lord of the Manor”. He doubled the size of the original home and increased the capacity of the mill by adding a third set of millstones so that he could grind barley and corn as well as his wheat. The main home and gristmill have been restored to appear as it did in the mid-18th century and is currently a historic restoration that may be visited, and is under the auspices of Historic Hudson Valley. Regal Pest Management is very proud to serve an area with such a historical heritage and we enjoy being a part and serving all the communities throughout Westchester County.
