Visit Downtown Midland Trust Bldg.

On the north wall of the Midland Trust Building at South Broadway and Burd Street in Nyack is a plaque installed in 1938 that reads:
The Tappan Indians, from time immemorial, occupied these lands fronting the river shore. Here, in summer they lived upon fish and oysters. In Algonkian dialect spoken by them they called this location NAY-ACK which means the fishing place. The first settlement of white people within the limits of the present Rockland County, New York, took place in 1675 when Harmen Dowesen (Tallman), a young Dutchman of Bergen, New Jersey relocated here.

    My Grandfather was named after his grandfather Tallman, whose grandfather was Harmen Dowesen (Tallman's) brother. Dowesen is old Dutch for Tallman (new dutch - english name) so last name changed by second generation.
