Frederick P. Rose and Rock Shelter Preserve

193 N Salem Rd
Waccabuc, NY 10597

About Us:

Covering woods, old fields and wetlands, the Frederick P. Rose Preserve and the Rock Shelter Preserve are a key link in the Eastern Westchester Biotic Corridor, a 22,000-acre swath of land noted for its regionally-important diversity of wildlife. Hikers and equestrians who use the trail system will find old stone walls and the ruins of old buildings that were part of Brady Farm in the 19th century.

The preserves are a combination of parcels given to Westchester Land Trust by John Todd Mead, Ltd., Rock Shelter Road Homeowners Association, Adam R. Rose, Waccaboro Corp., and Victor Weingarten and Roy Neuberger. Mr. Rose’s contribution covers 20 acres of open upland fields on the preserve dedicated to the memory of Mr. Rose’s father, the late builder and philanthropist Frederick P. Rose.
