About Us The history of the Hudson Valley is as rich, broad, and deep as the river itself. As a resident living along its shores, you follow in the footsteps of famous politicians, authors, artists, and captains of industry,all of whom have been captivated by this region’s beauty and romance. Little is known about the first prehistoric residents, but we do know that the Weckquasgeek Indians lived here at the time of Henry Hudson’s arrival. These Native Americans belonged to the Mohegan Nation, spoke an Algonquin dialect, and lived around Wicker’s Creek.
The river provided an abundance of fish and oysters; in fact, remnants of oyster feasts can still be found at the “shell midden,” visible from Clubhouse Drive. Near the Clubhouse entrance is a plaque commemorating the shell midden, left by the Lenape Indians.
Our village is named for William Dobbs, who established a ferry from Willow Point to Sneden’s Landing directly across the river. Three generations of the Dobbs family carried on this Native American tradition, ferrying passengers across the river in dugout canoes. The Dobbs family operated the ferry from about 1698 to 1759.
Dobbs Ferry today is a thriving and diverse community with approximately 10,600 residents. Dubbed “the new jewel of the Rivertowns,” in the August 2005 issue of Westchester Magazine, Dobbs Ferry offers a family-friendly environment, a picturesque downtown featuring a variety of fine eating and shopping establishments, dramatic river views, the beautiful Aqueduct trail, close proximity to Manhattan, and excellent schools. (Dobbs Ferry High School has the county’s only International Baccalaureate Program). Also, the Hudson Valley architectural style, which derives mainly from the Dutch, imparts a special sense of history and charm. The village’s residents fight hard to maintain a balance between big-city amenities and the small-town charm that has attracted so many of us.
The Landing The Landing comprises 35.5 acres in one of Dobbs Ferry’s finest locations. It consists of 103 town houses, with six models: the Ash, Beech, Cedar, Dogwood, Elm, and Ficus. Units range from 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and 1 to 2 car garages. Sizes range from 1,765 to 2,600 sq. ft., with an additional full-floor walkout garden level in most models. We offer a diverse community for all lifestyles.
