Two Clarkstown properties added to National Register of Historic Places

Traphagen House

NEW CITY – Tallman-Budke and Vanderbilt-Budke-Traphagen Houses have been added to the National Register of Historic Places, Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann announced.

The nine-acre Traphagen property, which includes the 1791 Tallman-Budke House and the 1820 Vanderbilt-Budke-Traphagen House, was recently added to the New York State Register of Historic Places as well. The state forwarded the nomination to the Keeper of the National Registry for review, who approved the application.

“Traphagen is a historic jewel of Clarkstown and I will continue to make the rehabilitation of Traphagen a priority,” Hoehmann said. “Being listed on the National Register of Historic Places is acknowledgement of the impact Clarkstown has made, not only on the history of our great state, but of our great country.”

The Tallman-Budke House is one of the oldest sandstone houses in the region and the Vanderbilt-Budke-Traphagen House represents a colonial revival style dwelling.

The historic houses are adjacent to the town’s 78-acre Germonds Park.
