Dutch farmers first settled here early in the 18th century on land purchased from Indians who had occupied this region for millennia. Under mounting pressure for a cross-county road between the port of Nyack and Ramapo a turnpike was built. The section through the Greenbush Swamp and "the little swamp" here in Clarksville was opened by 1825. When completed in the 1830's the turnpike became a toll road until 1893.
