Open House 1-4 pm at the Keeper's House. At 2 pm, Curator Robert Kornfeld, Jr. will speak and answer questions about his exhibit, The Tunnel: A Passage through History. The exhibit features engineers' drawings and photographs of the Old Croton Aqueduct, now designated a National Historic Landmark, beginning with David Douglass' earliest sketches from 1832, through the evolution into an action plan designed and executed by John Jervis, and later to the design and construction of the New Croton Aqueduct and the Gatehouse in Central Park. The Keeper's House, used in the 1800's as a residence by the engineer charged with maintaining the Aqueduct, has been restored and repurposed as a Visitor and Education Center, including details of the 176-year-old water system.
